    Shrine famous for having cut off the evil destiny. A power spot from that of Kyoto Higashiyama Yasui, filled with the women of sadness and malice. And Bill crammed into the rock with a hole and stuck through the hole and saying you can get away with evil destiny "regards young women lined up.

    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.

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.
