No.47 Yasaka-ji welcomes pilgrims with an unusual looking gate that is narrow widthwise and long lengthwise.
The brightly colored picture on the ceiling of the main gate is also unusual.
What is interesting about Yasaka-ji is that there is an Enma temple that has two gates, one on the left and the other on the right side of the temple, where there is an illustration of Paradise and a painting of Hell.
