About Yoshida Shrine
Yoshida Shrine is a shrine in Sakyo-ku, Kyoto. The history has begun in 859 when Fujiwara yamakage prayed for the coming of a deity of the Kasuga Taisha Shrine Four in Nara as the god of family.
The shrine is located at the foot of Mt. Yoshida, and when you try to reach the shrine from the north exit, it becomes a mountain climbing route. This is a valuable place where small natural mountain is left as it is in the city.
Yoshida Shrine is revered as the god of charm luck. In addition, there are shrines of many faiths in the precincts, such as the Great Yuan Palace honoring the god of the whole country, the god of food and the god of sweets.
