Bigozensha-jinja Shrine (美御前社)

Bigozensha-jinja Shrine is located on the grounds of Yasaka Shrine in Kyoto's Higashiyama Ward, and it is said to have arisen from the sword of the god Susa-no-o-no-Mikoto. Three goddesses are enshrined here. On the grounds there is a spring with water that is supposed to beautify one's skin, so many women who are interested in improving their looks make pilgrimages to this shrine. Every year in November, barbers and hairdressers come to this shrine to pray for better skills and prosperity at the Barbers' and Hairdressers' Thanksgiving Festival.

On est tout de suite attiré par la couleur des boiseries, orange vif, qui ressort très bien et rend l’endroit très photogénique

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
