Story & Recommendation
A shrine home to the gods of building good relationships and marriage
This shrine is located a short distance from the center of Gion. It’s where people come in hopes to break off bad relations and form good ones. It’s said that the "power stone monument of breaking off bad relations and initiating good ones" will grant your wishes. Visitors pass through the hole in a large rock and stick down a note on which they’ve written their wishes. The rock covered in notes is really a sight to see. Even people with no particular wishes visit just to take photos.

Be sure to check the route carefully when coming from the Gion direction, as it can be a bit confusing. On holidays, queues form with people waiting to pass through the "power stone monument for breaking off bad relations and initiating good ones".
