This temple is is a must to visit while in Kyoto. For good photos I recommend to be at this place in an early morning before it gets too crowded.

It is just what the title says, it is a small temple servicing a neighborhood. It is well kept up for the upscale area.

Most of the sightseeing place of Kyoto has crowded. But when we came in this shrine there was very few people. Shrine is in mountain and also near the Kyoto university. Very nice view and pleasant area.

I see that Yoshida has a grand total of two reviews (not including this one). I'm surprised yet not. There are some ridiculous number of temples and shrines in the Kyoto area, many of which are bigger and grander. Yoshida has the benefit of being quietly tucked away in the NE corner of the city, between the river and the Path of the Philosophers. We happened across it walking from the one to the other, and were delighted to find the lovely albeit small temple tucked up against the hill, with winding trails, trees, and a beautiful coffee shop (at the peak of the hill). Also a children's play area at the hill top. Well worth a visit.

京都の吉田神社は万神を祭っている八角の大元宮がある。1601年に建たれた。こんな特別な神社は凄いと思う。 This Kyōto shrine building is very special, built in 1601 it is of a unique octagonal shape. This reflects the belief system of Yoshida Shintō, founded by Yoshida Kanetomo in 1484, which seeks harmonistic syncretism with Buddhism, Confucianism and the Way of the Dao. The octagonal Daigengū is dedicated to all Shintō deities, of which 3,132 gods are named around the site. Because of this, it is said, or at least by Yoshida-jinja, that visiting this shrine is the same as if one visited every shrine across Japan.
