We found this temple on our way from Rengeoin Sanjusangendo as we were walking to the Kiyomizu-dera Temple. There were several others along the way, such as the Ontani Mausoleum, the Yōgenin Temple, and far too many others to count. The Toyokuni Shrine is located up a tall set of stairs, and nearly invisible from the street.
