Most of the sightseeing place of Kyoto has crowded. But when we came in this shrine there was very few people. Shrine is in mountain and also near the Kyoto university. Very nice view and pleasant area.

bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
