Jisyu Shrine, Kyoto
(3.8/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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. Jisyu Shrine is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Kyoto Edition.

  • Students came to Kiyomizu Temple, God of marriage that are crowded with worshipers. Entering the shrine entrance stairs are not flexible, so it's also out is hard.

  • It is recently like popular power spot. I went on of my friends want to go, but is here honestly disappointed. Or feel the business is saying, love & romance, but rather a mysterious atmosphere without the tourist attractions it is.

  • 位於清水寺內的神社,這間神社特別處在於顏色特別鮮豔,很有日本風味,主要是求姻緣,受年輕人歡迎,神社前有兩顆石頭,據說只要閉著眼睛從一顆石頭走到另一顆,就能有好姻緣,現場可以看到有人在做,非常有趣

Meh family and love with their attempt at a shrine for it, no problem at all God is from a little want to be sober on business, with ones from a lot. Despise find annoying as many souvenirs as lucky as him is, because it does not complain about what's here are the tourist souvenir, here is a shrine, here was the whole shrine dealer.
