Not only do the residents appreciate the many shrines and ancient past. They also have a strong sense of propriety of family. This makes harder for locals to consider themselves true kyotoites unless they can trace their lineage back 4 generations. What makes this place so immaculate are the values that the locals have such insisting anything made outside their city is of lesser quality therefore making their own the best humanly possible. So if a traveler wanted to splurge on a fancy dinner or gifts for a friend everything would be top notch. 6th century The Shimogamo Shrine was created and looks as if it were frozen time, with its serenity and spiritual power.
