Yasaka Shrine in the Early Evening

A stroll through Kyoto's iconic landmark in Higashiyama

Yasaka Shrine, also known as Gion Shrine is an iconic building in Kyoto. It is located close to the Gion district where you may be able to catch a glimpse of the elusive and mysterious Geisha. I came over during the early evening to take a walk and the place was beautifully lit up. There are not too many people strolling around the shrine in the evening, giving a peaceful atmosphere not usually available during the day. Do give it a try and experience this.
