Located in a forest, overlooking the settlement of Tenno, Shuchi-jinja is surrounded by the noises of the birds and the wind that blows between the trees. It is such a serene environment that, as one encroaches upon the complex, feels guilty if they dare make any sound.
The shrine was supposedly moved here, from it's original site atop Mt Nishimine, during the first year of Emperor Senka's reign (536AD) and is considered the predecessor to Yasaka-jinja in Kyoto. The main hall, or Honden, was erected around the year 1612 and is registered as a "Cultural Asset" of Kyoto prefecture.
As you pass through the vermilion-colored Torii, you ascend the stone steps (some 100 or so) and arrive at the lower complex . . . .
. . . . and are greeted by this Chozuya, or purification spring. From here, after performing your ablution, you proceed to the upper complex, via another set of stone steps (only about 70 this time).
The upper complex, with the Honden directly in front of you, is a bit cramped, which limits one to photograph the building (it is also enclosed behind a wooden fence, and the gate locked) but, if one was to clamber-up the bank surrounding the complex, might be able to obtain a good viewpoint.
Shuchi-jinja is incorporated into the "Kyotanabeonesuge Hiking Course", which I have completed several times over the years, and, if you plan to check-out this complex, I highly recommend you hike the course. There is a car-park attached to the shrine, but I won't encourage you to park, as it is via a very narrow & steep lane. As explained in the above link, there is a regular bus-service to either Hotani (not on the hiking course but connects with it), Tenno, Takefune or Muxutori Settlements.
One more task before I sign-off - the all important Video. Enjoy.
