Abe No Seimei [Sep. 26th, 2006|04:32 am]


[mood |busy]

I am pretty sure his shrine is in Kyoto ,but I am also pretty sure his grave is there as well .

Is it one in the same,or are they different places altogether ?
And can anyone direct me to a good reference to find both places ?
Thank you .

When I visited Kyoto and the Seimei shrine there, I was told there was another shrine, though they didn't mention his burial site and I can find no reference to that. I found an entry by a Kyoto resident in a blog discussion about Seimei which said:
Seimei Jinja, built on the location of his former mansion, is of course the main one, but I also know of an Abeno Seimei Jinja in Abeno ward in Osaka, which I think is built on the area where he was born and/or grew up.

The Osaka city website lists that shrine among the attractions in Abeno Ward.

Hope this helps!
