Nashiki shrine at the east side of Gosho Palace enshrines Sanjo Sanetsumu and Sanjo Sanetomi, a father and son from a court noble clan, both advocated the Ousei Fukko (王政復古, Restoration of Imperial Rule) from the early stage of Meiji Ishin (明治維新, Meiji restoration) and supported the new dawn of Japan.
On the premises, there is a natural water spring called Somei no Mizu, listed as one of the three top springs in Kyoto. My father used to draw some water from it and make a cup of delicious coffee for me. I strongly wish this spring wells up eternally just like my memories with my father.
