You will see the entrance (a brightly coloured Buddhist style rather than Tori) to this shrine while walking around the Gion area. It is the red gate you will see while walking along Shijo-Dori street.
There are some nice shrine buildings to see, and as we visited close to New Years eve there were many stalls setting up for the festivities. From the site you can walk through Maruyama-kien park and towards Chion-in temple complex, which is a must see. All of this will easily take up a whole afternoon.
