The shrine is small but cozy. The rabbits are the icons of this shrine.

This is a place where cultural heritage is more than tourist attraction. The place is relatively small compare to all other attractions near by or in Kyoto area. You can finish this place within 5 min. Therefore do not expect great views or austonishing experience, if you are not so into the cultural experience.
On the other hand this place is very traditional and is not commercialized as other attractions. You can experience the most authentic essence of Japanese culture here.
