The area
Neighborhood: Northern Kyoto
Hot springs and historic temples characterize the leafy landscapes of Northern Kyoto. Acres of tranquil residential streets are interrupted by some of Kyoto's most gorgeous architectural gems, including the majestic Golden Pavilion of Kinkakuji, the serene artistry of the Ryoanji Temple rock gardens, and the bold red paint across the structures of Enryakuji Temple. Once a religious core of the city, the district now boasts some of its most remote and peaceful hot springs, as well as a few of its best family-run mom-and-pop restaurants. A blend of extremely local at its outskirts, and highly peopled at its tourist centers, Northern Kyoto nonetheless retains a halcyon air in harmony with nature.

Near Ota Shrine there is a stele which indicates the birthplace of Kitaoji Rosanjin. There is an explanation panel as well. If you are his admirer, it is worth visiting this place. Many people come here from Kamigamo Shrine, but I walked from subway Kitayama station. It takes about 20 minutes, but not very hard to walk.
