So far, I thought that Emperor Kanmus mausoleum is near Kyoto. I was not aware that there is a Shinto shrine dedicated to Emperor Kanmu in Nara. While I am certainly no expert regarding Shinto shrines (nor regarding geography), I could not get any info about any such shrine via Google, even if I tried really hard. There is one Kashihara Shrine in Nara Prefecture, but it is dedicated to Japan's first emperor, Emperor Jimmu, as far as I am informed.

Also this Google translation of an Asahi article speaks about the Akishinos „worshiping“ Emperor Jimmu. I would never totally rely on a Google translation for correct information, but I am still asking myself if Getty could have gotten anything wrong there?

(I have seen that Gettyimages says: „KASHIHARA, JAPAN - NOVEMBER 07: Japanese Prince Akishino, Princess Kiko and their son Prince Hisahito, on their way back from their visit to mausoleum of Emperor Kanmu on November 7, 2012 in Kashihara, Nara, Japan.“, and so I suppose that is where you got the info from, Iceflower. )

If anybody has any ideas regarding this matter, Id very much like to hear them.

A few more pics from the park visit

It seems that Getty indeed made a mistake. This blog also talks of a visit to the mausoleum of Emperor Jimmu.
