  • Richmond, monkeys. What is written is connected to EMA etc to wow. "00 and broke up with me can be found as" of that content is a lot. Located within the area, the hole in the Middle, go will soon as thieves cut through the back and tied the edges of stones are. There were a lot of serious type, looking at the Lady (burst out laughing, watching solemnly, that through the seriously. ).

  • What should be seen as a historic site is no small shrine famous for breaking the narrow precincts and EMA hanging with and to them ", her husband and her lover goodbye let me" '00 unhappy to be"or"I with my husband's parents ' House, so "written by our real names and advanced realistic scary content is written. To pass through the stone off thieves have flees, read something weird that I came back so early in the environment and through the hole in the middle that women were lining up long. Scary!

  • This shrine is a lovely stop if you're wandering down Hanamikoji in Gion. It's spacious but still manages to feel intimate. What's unique about this particular shrine is the large stone with a hole in the center. One writes a wish on the special piece of paper provided, holds it in hand as he passes through the stone twice (back and forth) then attaches the wish to the stone. As with all shrines and temples, be respectful of the people who are there to worship.
  • A great stopover. Good food choices
  • A Nice temple , if you go through the hole in the rock you have all negative influences cleared away then when you come back through you make a wish and the good influences will low to you .
  • Even more lovely at night
  • Interesting!

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
