O'otoyo Shrine

Otoyo Shrine, off Philosopher’s Path, Kyoto

Otoyo shrine (大豊神社) is a tiny shrine, near Eikan-do (永観堂) temple, along Philosopher’s Path. It’s popular among Japanese for its statues of guardians. Generally shrine’s guardians are vicious looking Koma-inu (literally means Korean dogs), however this shrine has lovely version of its kind. It attracts Japanese visitors even though the shrine isn’t especially significant.
