It was such an interesting shrine with mountains of doors of all sizes that you could imagine. You can enjoy the culture as well as climbing the hills. Great culture experience!

It's a small shrine with zen surrounding but in a very pack tourist spot. Try to find some off peak season if you want to enjoy the surrounding more.

This is a small shrine located in the bamboo forest and it is not an elaborate shrine but it does get busy. There's a nice atmosphere at this shinto shrine and with it being surrounded by the bamboo forest makes it a beauty.

Came across a torii gate which means there must be a Shinto shrine inside while walking along the Bamboo Groves of Arashiyama. The shrine though not much famous as the other great Zen or Shinto ones has own famed story to tell.

It is a small shrine in the bamboo grove, it is worth to pay it a visit, it has a nice atmosphere. But be early in the grove, than it is not that crowded.

Not the best temple to spend your time at due to the amount of people who pass through. It looks very nice if you can get there early or in the evening.
