Yasaka Shrine in Kyoto


We took a taxi from our hotel to Yasaka Shrine (八坂神社) in the eastern part of the city. Although it was Saturday night the roads were pretty packed and it took a while to get there.

The shrine was started in the eighth century and had been remodeled and expanded over the centuries.

Whilst there we took a look around and posed for a few photo opportunities with girls wearing traditional clothing. After that, it was time to head for our dinner that the hotel booked for us.
