Dreams of Miyako (都の夢想) is part of an occasional series that celebrates contemporary echoes of the 1,000 years during which Kyoto was Japan's Imperial capital from 794 to 1869. To see others in the series, click on the tag "miyako" or "都".

Here, a Shinto priest in traditional robes dating back to Japan's "Heian Period" (794-1185) makes an offering at Shimogamo Shrine (下鴨神社).
