I feel like every other post about Kyoto is about a shrine or temple. Maybe more. But most of Kyoto's sights are shrines and temples, after all! But that makes finding a reason to visit each one that much more difficult.
Yasaka Shrine is best visited after walking from Kiyomizu-dera and through Higashiyama. However, you can take bus 100 or 206 from Kyoto Station and get off at the Gion bus stop, which is right across the street from the shrine gate you see above. The shrine is always open and admission is free.
