Cover photo: Sawata Shrine within the precinct of Shimogamo Shrine enshrines the deity of ball sports and there is a stone monument which states ''The place of the first kick'' as it is where the first rugby match was held in the Kansai region. At the nearby Kawai Shrine, visitors can purchase an ema (wooden tablet on which people write their wish and offer to the deity) in the form of a rugby ball.
