    What travelers say:

    Come on June 9, 2013. Yasaka shrine is famous in Japan, where the "Kanda Sacrifice" is held in Tokyo, and the "Kanda Sacrifice" in Osaka is also known as the "Three Sacrifices". So it is very busy during summer festivals. Even in normal times, it is a very popular attraction. It is said that the Yasukuni Shrine is a place where you can respond to requests and the contents of your prayers are varied. Another view of the shrine is architecture, the shrine center dance hall is a landmark building in Kyoto, the main temple is the classic Japanese architecture school "Garden of the garden", it is recommended to focus on.

    Introduction

    Located in the Higashiyama scenic area of Kyoto and commonly called Gion Shrine, Yasaka Shrine is the most important Shinto shrine of the approximately 3,000 sub-shrines throughout Japan. The rather unique mikoshi (divine palanquin) within allows visitors the chance to pray to the God of Beauty. The shrine's ritual activity is known as the Gion Festival (Gion Matsuri), which is one of the three great Shinto festivals of Japan, together with the Kanda Festival (Kanda Matsuri) in Tokyo and the Tenjin Festival (Tenjin Matsuri) in Osaka. Yasaka Shrine is also a popular hanami (cherry blossom viewing) site in spring.
