2015.01.24貴船神社の水占い – Water dipped Omikuji at Kifune shrine

京都の観光地でも東の山奥にある貴船神社。鴨川の水源地にあたり、古くから水の神さまの地として崇められています。ここにあるのが「水占いみくじ」。
200円を収め、みくじを一枚取り、脇の御神水に浮かべると、文字が浮き上がってきます。
おみくじの結果が多少悪くても、文字が浮き上がるという珍しいみくじのスタイルに少し気分が高揚してしまいます。

貴船神社へは京阪出町柳駅より叡山電鉄鞍馬線を利用、貴船口下車。
貴船口からは徒歩(上り坂)20~30分、バスで5分程度です。

Kifune Shrine is dedicated to the god of water and rain and believed to be the protector of those at sea.

Here you can obtain a unique type of fortune written on paper slips (Omikuji) that reveal their messages when dipped into water.
Pay 200 yen, pick one of the omikuji paper and then dipped it into water nearby.
Please note that this omikuji is witten in Japanese. No english omikuji.

Kifune shrine is connected with central Kyoto by Eizan Railway.
The one way trip along the Eizan Kurama Line from Demachi-Yanagi Station to Kibune-guchi Station takes 30 minutes.
Trains depart every 15-20 minutes. From Kibune-guchi Station, it is a further five minute bus ride or a 20-30 minute walk up the road to Kifune Shrine.
