Kurumazaki-jinja Shrine, located in Arashiyama, is not a very large shrine, but its name is well-known. The reason for this high degree of recognition is that this shrine includes the subshrine, Geino-jinja shrine which can help people in the entertainment professions, and there is a large film studio nearby, so the shrine is often visited by prominent entertainers. On the grounds of the shrine there is a 'Tamagaki'(fence of shrine) with the names of entertainers who have visited the shrine, and there are always visitors coming to look for famous names and take souvenir photos.
