Kyoto’s rabbit-themed shrine
Who can say no to the cute rabbits of Okazaki Shrine? Like many others, I stumbled upon this place and decided to go based on the cute rabbit photos. The shrine is largely dedicated to safe childbirth, which kind of explains the rabbits. Otherwise, there are en-musubi (finding love) and yakuyoke (avoiding misfortune) components.
There are rabbits everywhere, from various shrine decorations to large statues. It’s not a huge place, and probably not a must-see unless you’re a serious rabbit fan. That said, if you’re into cute things and have a bit of free time, it might be a fun little place to stop by.
