Sights at Imamiya Shrine

Imamiya Shrine is located in Kita-ku District up in Northern Kyoto. I have a formal post here if you care to read. It is also located to the large temple complex of Daitoku-ji. I stopped by here really early in the morning when there wasn't anyone to be seen.
This guy was here taking some photographs with his Canon, had a nice backpack to boot.

These restaurants called Ichiwa and Kazariya which are aburimochi where they serve roasted rice cakes. They have been opened since 1002 and 1656. Old!

There are a bunch of tiny little shrines within the grounds like this one. All for something different.
