Travel Guide - Jishu-jinja Shrine

InformationInformation

Jishu-jinja Shrine is located at the north of Kiyomizu-dera Temple. The buildings of the shrine were reconstructed in 1633 by the third Tokugawa Shogun, Iemitsu. The shrine's Honden main hall, Haiden hall, and So-mon gate are all designated as important cultural properties.
Jishu-jinja Shrine is especially popular among young women as a shrine to the god of marriage. It is said that if you are able to walk about 18 meters between a pair of stones in front of the Honden main hall and touch one stone to another with closing your eyes, your wish for love will come true.
Together with Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Jishu-jinja Shrine was registered as a part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto in 1994 with Kiyomizu-dera Temple.
