Yasaka-jinja Shrine is located down the hill from Maruyama Park. The shrine is also endearingly referred to as "Gion-san" because it is considered as the guardian shrine of neighboring Gion district in Kyoto.
Yasaka-jinja Shrine is said to have been founded in 656. The shrine is the headquarters of 3,000 Gion shrines that enshrine Susanoo, the god of the sea and storms. The shine's Honden main hall and Nishiro-mon gate are both designated as important cultural properties.
The shrine is particularly popular as a spot for the first shrine visit on New Year's Day and the Gion Festival held in July. The festival goes for the entire month of July is one of the three big festivals in Kyoto.
Ota-sha in the precincts of the Yasaka-jinja Shrine is a sub-shrine that enshrines the god of entertainment. Many Geisha in the Gion district visit the sub-shrine to pray for the improvement of their performing skills.
