Mikami Jinja Shrine is located at the foot of Mt. Ogura in the north of Arashiyama. It is the only shrine in Japan that enshrines the founder of the barber and beauty industry. Even today, the faith of barbers is strong. And there is a hair mound in the precincts where hair is dedicated.
It is a small shrine, and it is questionable whether it is worth it for tourists to visit this shrine.
Kokura Pond is a pond that spreads out in front of Mikami Jinja. This pond is located very close to Torokko Arashiyama Station. This pond is famous for its lotus flowers.
