This shrine was built in 1895. It has a huge Red Torii Gate across the road which leads up to the shrine itself. The shrine buildings are very bright and colorful and the gardens are very pretty especially when the cherry trees are in bloom.
My husband and I had 1 full day to spend in Kyoto so we booked a good will guide to take us around and I let him choose which temples and shrines to take us to. I enjoyed all the places that we visited, some more than others. I may have chosen different ones if I had done my own research. I knew Kyoto was famous for its temples and shrines and that is what I would be seeing when I was there. My advise to you would be to choose the ones that sound the most interesting to you.
