Today, the annual Japanese bush clovers festival (Hagi-萩), was held at the Nashinoki Shrine (梨木神社). Nashinoki Shrine is located on the East side of Kyoto's Imperial Palace and opposite of Rozanji Temple. Nashinoki Shrine was built in 1885 and enshrines Sanjō Sanetsumu (三條実萬公-1802-1859) and his son Sanjō Sanetomi (三條実美公), who were both imperial advisers in the late Edo Period, a time marked by political upheaval and violence. The spring water of Nashinoki Shrine (梨木神社), “Somei-no-mizu” (染井の水) flows from a famous spring, the only one of three famous springs from former times which is still operating. It is said that if you rub the tree in front of the fountain you will attain love.
