Many people come to this shrine to pray for cutting bad relations. And they go through a large ring provided. This has a symbolic meaning of reborn in a different world, while leave any bad things behind.

It's said that by crawling in and out the hole you will be able to attract good relationships and shed off bad ones. It's worth go pay a visit as it's near Gion and take a funny video.

Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko"
in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and
entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners,
Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with

streets on their way to and from work, where they fan
dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion
