SMALL SHRINE JUST OFF POET"S PATH
lis 2019
If you blink you can miss this shrine, it is not well directed to so you'll need to locate it on a more detailed map of the area.

Philosopher's Surprise
lis 2018
It was a beautiful day and we decided to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. Strolling the Philosopher's Walk fit the bill perfectly. On the way we happened to note the Otoyo Shrine; it's a little run down, not in perfect shape, but is dedicated to animals, the fox being a particular favorite. There were few people about so we had plenty of time to enjoy the buildings, trees, and the various animal statues that graced the grounds. It turned out to be the unexpected highlight of our day.

Small temple with a story
dub 2017 • Pár
Otoyo Shrine is located on Philosopher's Walk. It is small and can be visited in half an hour. It is small and stayed out of tourist side. The 2 mice on the left and right side of shrine are the protectors which goes back to a story in Japanese myths. Many locals visit this shrine as they believe the mice will bring the health, long life and happiness. The mouse statue on the left has a sake bowl, which means that if you worship here you will have a healthy baby.

Sweet little shrine
dub 2017 • Pár
Located just a tiny bit off the Philosopher's Path, this sweet little shrine is worth the short detour. The main mouse statues guarding the shrine are so sweet and unique. The shrine has a really lovely quietness to it as well, very different from the many people I'd just been alongside on the philosopher's path. If you're going along the path, take the little detour and see this sweet little hillside shrine.

Adorable little shrine with an old story to go with it
pro 2016
Very authentic and still somehow cute, the shrine seems to be well visited by the locals for prayers. I wouldn't go out of the way visiting it unless already on the Philosopher's path. You can read the old story for the shrine on the Walking the Path of Philosophy page of insidekyoto.com

Small shrine
lis 2016 • Pár
We visited this during our philosophers walk trail, it is tiny and not worth making a special trip to visit.

Really cute!

We stopped at the Otoyo-Jinja shrine which was an adorable place which has mice guardians. They also had a bird guardian and a monkey guardian, all represented by statues. I just liked how quaint it all was. There was no entry charge.

I found this small Shinto shrine by accident. It is dedicated to a variety of kami and has statues of all kinds of animals: mice, snakes, monkeys, hawks. It's like a small zoo set in stone, totally worth a visit.

Small, lovely shrine on philosophers walk

a small Shinto , shrine with guardian mice. A nice side visit if you're on the philosopher's path. I would not come here otherwise as there are much larger attractions in Kyoto

lovely shrine on Philosopher's Path

This is a magical stop off of the Philosopher's Path. Enter to see foxes and, rarer yet, rat statues on either side of Shinto shrines. Charming!
