Yasaka-jinja

This is a popular Shinto shrine in the area next to Gion, the traditional geisha entertainment district of Kyoto. As a matter of fact, this shrine is considered the patron saint of Gion and affectionately called Gion-san. It is a hot spot of hatsu-mode, the first shrine visit of the new year.
