Kyoto's Shimogamo Shrine is set to undergo renovations.

On March 20, work began on what is a once in twenty-one year transfer of the shrine deity.

Work on the Main Hall will not start until May.

To prepare for this, ancient rites were held at the shrine.

This is the 34th such transfer. and in the spring of 2015 the deity will return.
