Agata Shrine pairs well with a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage designated Byodo-in. It is a pleasant walk of about 100 meters. It is popular among visitors as a place of good luck for relationships and healthy births. If you are in Kyoto during early June, do not miss the festival here.

This is one of the prettier small shrines I visisted - it had some lights up and had a variety of tiny shrines within it. It also had a particularly impressive dragon at its purification fountain at the entrance, which I rather liked! Not a big or especially exciting shrine, but definitely worth looking at on a visit to Uji.... More

Staying in Southern Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
