About Yasaka Shrine

Founded over 1,350 years ago, Yasaka Shrine is fronted by a soaring granite "torii" gate that stands almost 10 metres tall. It's painted in an eye-catching shade of orange and guarded by a pair of fearsome Zuishin warrior statues.

The complex is anchored by the main shrine, a beautiful building clad in cypress shingles. It's fronted by a stage strung with hundreds of red lanterns, which often hosts cultural performances and geisha shows. Locals flock to ring the prayer bells, which is believed to alert the gods to their presence.

Every July, Yasaka Shrine throws the famous Gion Matsuri festival, a tradition that is over 1,000 years old where the surrounding streets overflow with colourful floats. The shrine is especially beautiful in spring when the pink cherry blossoms are in bloom. You can also visit adjacent Maruyama Park, one of Kyoto's most beautiful cherry blossom viewing spots.

Getting there

Yasaka Shrine is in the Gion District, a 20-minute bus ride from Kyoto Station. Gion Shijo Station on the Keihan Line is a 10-minute walk away. Alternatively, you can walk there in 30 minutes from Kiyomizudera Temple through the Higashiyama District.
