I sought this shrine out after hearing about it's unique quality to sever or solidify ties with someone or something. I considered trying it myself but there are no translated directions and I was nervous about getting it wrong. It was interesting but not really...More
I visited before noon in late January but there had been many visitors. There's no enough space so that there's a long line to pray the god. And to crawl through a monument as well. There's a notion if you don't have time, you can...More

Many people come to this shrine to pray for cutting bad relations. And they go through a large ring provided. This has a symbolic meaning of reborn in a different world, while leave any bad things behind.
Just few steps away from our Airbnb, we passed by this place everyday. We were fascinated to see the rock fully covered with papers containing wishes...We were curious to see local people, young and old, crawling through the rock so we decided to do the...More
Truly lucky to be in Kyoto on the day the shrine celebrated it's festival day. Our guide made a special point to bring us here. There is relatively short Shinto ceremony which culminates in the burning of wishing sticks people would have written their wishes....More
At the bottom of Hanami-koji, take a left and about one block east, turn right to go through a stone toori shrine gate, down the path, through the red toori gate into the temple. The main attraction for most obviously is the power stone, but...More
Not sure if we can manage ”fates”, but the reputation is great. When going through a little stone, you can stop all bad fates, and when going through it again, you can invite good fates. You should try anyway if you want to change!
Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko" in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners, Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the streets on their way to and from work, where they fan dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets
glow with lanterns along the river, where weeping willows catch the starlight and the air is warmed with conversation. Groups pass through to populate the restaurants and bars along the riverfront, but Gion still manages to be a mostly quiet district, due in large part to limited automotive traffic through many of its streets. Gion is a wonderful place to indulge in Kyoto's local and customary cuisines, and is best enjoyed after dark.
