Vol.159:Next year’s zodiac is the year of the tiger! Why don’t you visit the temples and shrines that are related to the year of the Tiger?

It’s finally less than a month later this year. I think it was a year when it was difficult to go out for dinner or travel due to the influence of the new coronavirus.

Next year, I think it would be good to go out while taking measures against infection from the New Year.
Next year is the year of the tiger, so I will introduce the temples and shrines related to the year of the tiger.
Before that, I would like to introduce some bean information about the zodiac.

Next year, to be exact, it will be Mizunoe Tiger.
The zodiac signs are represented by “Jikkan” and 12 zodiac signs, and there are 60 ways.
It seems that it will make a round in the 60th birthday since it was born.

I think everyone is familiar with the Zodiac, but I think that Heavenly Stems are not so conscious of anything other than the year they were born or the year they were born.
What kind of year is said to be the year of “Mizunoe Tiger”?

It is said that “Mizunoe” means “to conceive cheerfulness” and “tiger” means “to lead to earthworms and spring vegetation occurs”.
It is said that it will be a year of growing spring beyond the cold winter.
Now, I would like to introduce three temples and shrines in Kyoto that are related to the year of the Tiger.
