If you go in the late afternoon just before sunset you will finds lots of girls wearing traditional clothes. If you are polite probably they will love to smile for your picture.

Beautiful shrine lit up with a line of lanterns. Not as big as Kiyomizu-Dera temple, but has it’s charm. There are also hawkers at the entrance selling local delicacies!

Yasaka Shrine is a bustling, colorful and pleasant downtown shrine that lies at the heart of much of Kyoto's festive tradition, including the famous Gion Matsuri.

Large shrine complex, nice oasis in the middle of the city. Beautiful at night, but feels weirdly overdeveloped, almost more like an Epcot exhibit than a traditional Japanese shrine.

白河院は、寵愛する祇園女御の所に行く途中で、化け物と遭遇する。院のお供であった忠盛(清盛の父)は、それを灯籠に火をつけようとする老法師だと見破る。その灯籠がこれ。忠盛のその冷静さを称賛し、院は祇園女御を褒美として与えるが、この時、女御は既に院の子を身ごもっていたとも言われ、そのお腹の子が清盛だと『平家物語』は伝えている。
