Fun shrine to visit right within Kiyomizedera temple. This place is famous for “relationship / love life”. A few things to look out for
1. Love stones - there are two stones within this small shrine. The belief is that if you walk from one to another with your eyes closed, your wish will come true.
2. The 2am-visit tree - there is a big tree at which ladies in the old day come and do a voodoo-like ritual to curse their enemies. You can still see the nail holes.
