Find love in Japan goto Jishu Shrine Love Stones in Kyoto

Having trouble finding the right Japanese girlfriend or  boyfriend? Finding the right one is difficult in any country but if you live in Japan, you can always head to Kyoto’s Jishu Shrine  (built by Shogun Iemitsu in 1633) tucked away behind Kiyomizudera Temple which is the home of the famous Love Stones (koiuranai no ishi).

The shrine receives alot of visitors because this is where the god of love and marriage (Okuninushi-no Mikoto) is enshrined.  The shrine does a brisk trade in Omamuri (amulets) that promise to help “for love knot”, “for good marriage”, “for love chance”.  The Love Stones are a pair of rocks set in the ground about 6 metres apart. If you can successfully walk from one stone to the other with your eyes closed you will be lucky in love.
