This shrine is on the other side of the river from Byodoin Temple. Its very old and relatively small and for rabbit. Its has less visitors than Byodoin and hence really peaceful.

Not wide. There are main shrine and several gods around. It's amulets and omikuji are displayed right front of its kiosk that looks very commercial.

This shrine is a slight walk away from the train station as I took the JR Nara Line. Nice place. Unfortunately I couldn't get a temple stamp on the spot as the person writing was not there; had to buy the pre-made ones at JPY500.

comparing to other temples in Kyoto, this place is very quiet and not crowded. So we have pleasure to look around in slow pace.

Ujigami Shrine being one of the oldest shrine in Japan was on the upper portion of the narrow pathway away from the main street. Although the place was small, but the place was very quiet with a peaceful environment. Nice to stroll along this area.

This is said to be the oldest Shinto shrine in Japan. Certainly it is among the oldest and is a charmer. See it while you are visiting the treasure house, Byoden-in.

Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi
Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist
attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens,
temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for
strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine
itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the
mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers,
picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the
