Neighborhood: City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.

The origin of this shrine is Heian Period. But what we know well is the legend of Empress Gosakuramachi, who thanks to the god of this shrine stopped her toothache.

At the end of the Heian period, the Hakusan Shrine in Kaga came to this place to make a strong appeal, but was unable to fulfill it. Furthermore, one of the mikoshi (portable shrines) stopped working here, and they were abandoned and left behind. It seems that the local people could not leave it there, so they enshrined it. It is also famous for relieving toothache.
