About this sight

Located in Arashiyama, this small shrine is famous for its sub-shrine, the Geino Jinja Shrine, where professionals from the entertainment industry come to pray. With a large film studio close by, the shrine is often visited by media personalities. Travelers will find a tamagaki (shrine fence) here with the names of the entertainers who have made offerings, as well as kinen shiseki, a pile of rocks bearing prayers from shrine visitors. Different types of cherry blossom trees bloom on the shrine grounds from early March to April.
