Kushida shrine is located next to a shopping arcade. Easily accessible from Gion station. Greeted by an impressive entrance. Look up at the main entrance and you will see a big decoration with animals from the zodiac. A huge float is kept in the temple.

Very conveniently located with walking distance from the city center. Lovely place to visit, and you'll feel serene visiting this place. A great place to go as a break after all the shopping nearby. Oh and it's free.
