Tree of Love at Nashinoki Jinja Shrine

Nashinoki jinja (梨木神社) Shrine, located close to Kyoto Gosho (京都御所, Kyoto Imperial Palace), enshrines Sanjo Sanetsumu (三条実萬) and his son, Sanetomi (実美), both highly contributed to Meiji Ishin (明治維新, Meiji Restoration), and is said to be responsive to prayers for relationships. On the premises, there is a sacred Katsura (桂, Cinnamomum cassia) tree whose leaves are huge and pretty heart-shaped.

The shrine is usually not crowded, but attracts many visitors during the Hagi (萩, bush clover) season. The Somei-no-ido (染井の井戸) well on the premises is listed as one of the three great wells of Kyoto, and produces quality water called Somei-no-Mizu (染井の水).

It maybe nice to visit other super well known "matchmaker” shrines, however, it will be nice to visit this quiet shrine and dedicate a heart-shaped Ema (絵馬, votive wooden plate) in all your sincerity. Please make a wish for your loved one and caress the tree of love.
