Yasaka Shrine (八坂神社, Yasaka Jinja), also known as Gion Shrine, is one of the most famous shrines in Kyoto. Founded over 1350 years ago, the shrine is located between the popular Gion District and Higashiyama District, and is often visited by tourists walking between the two districts.
Voted as one of the “Top 100 Beaches of Japan”, Inasa Beach is also known as a sacred location in Izumo where rituals to the Gods are performed. Lots of famous mythological sites can be seen here, such as “Byobu Rock” at the far-side of the beach. Ranita Sunset at Inasahama Sunset Thanks for reading!
I go back to explore Kasuga Taisha, shrine of a thousand lanterns, hidden away in the primeval forest of Kasugayama. Shinto shrines are generally destroyed and rebuilt every 20 years for purification purposes and this is the 57th re-incarnation of the 1700 year old Shrine.
