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.

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!

It's said that by crawling in and out the hole you will be able to attract good relationships and shed off bad ones. It's worth go pay a visit as it's near Gion and take a funny video.

in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and
