Jisyu Shrine, Kyoto

3.3
Those who have romantic worries of all varieties might want to take a chance on Jisyu Shrine. Dubbed “the Cupid of Japan,” the shrine has served love-seekers for 1,300 years, allowing visitors to pray for help from various gods, either to fend off love rivals or increase the longevity of a current relationship. If you're seeking true love, however, you'll have to traverse the space between two magical "love stones" with your eyes closed. Legend has it that if you manage to find the second stone, placed 10 m (32.8 ft) from the first, your wishes for love will be granted.

  • Spring break in March when the people were. Is true love can go, eyes closed from stone to stone, who is much too did not seem to be able. Avoiding implicit Street in the old days, went is... There is no help from many people I guess.

  • From the water temple down, on the way to see the landlord shrine. The construction time of the landlord shrine is 701, its history is earlier than clear water temple, in Japan before the founding of the landlord shrine. Here is the "single dog" will come to the place----the landlord shrine, the history than clear water temple is still early, mourner God is the main power, is Japan's only affinity, pray for love to transport the shrine. In front of the main hall there is a pair of 17-18 meters of "love Stone", heard that as long as blindfolded, the mouth of the name of the admirer, from a stone to another stone, the future will be successful marriage.
