What people are saying:

The special landforms formed after hundreds of millions of years of changes in the earth's crust make it the filming location of the "Star Wars" movie. Being on the scene, it really feels like being on an alien planet.

Additional Information


The Heian Shrine was built in 1895 to commemorate 1,100 years of peaceful relocation of the imperial capital. The attraction is a partial replica of the Imperial Palace from the Heian Period and is dedicated to the worship of Emperor Kanmu and Emperor Komei. Attractions in the area include a giant torii gate, Jingu-michi (shrine walkway), Otenmon (main gate) and Shin-en Garden. The Shin-en Garden in the main hall is considered an iconic masterpiece of Japanese styled gardens that feature a path around a pond.
