Half a month has already passed in the new year.
For Kyoto which is surrounded by temples and shrines, the visit in January is special.
What shrines are in the spotlight in Kyoto in 2020?
That's right, "Otoyo jinja Shrine" stands along the Tesugaku no michi (Philosopher's Path).
A rare "Koma Nezumi (Mouse)" is enshrined in this precinct.
A mouse holding a drinking vessel and a mouse holding a scroll greet you!
This year is the Year of the "Ne (Mouse)", and there will always be a long line of visitors!
Ema and omikuji with a motif of a shrine rat are cute, so please check them out.
