El Santuario Heian de Kyoto (平安神宮, Heian Jingū) fue fundado en el año 1895 para conmemorar el 1.100º aniversario de la creación de Heian-kyo, que era el antiguo nombre de la ciudad de Kyoto. Está dedicado a los espíritus del primer y último emperador que reinó la ciudad, el Emperador Kammu que lo hizo entre los años 737 y 806 y el Emperador Komei, que lo hizo entre los años 1831 y 1867.
