Jisyu Shrine, Kyoto

3.8
Those who have romantic worries of all varieties might want to take a chance on Jisyu Shrine. Dubbed “the Cupid of Japan,” the shrine has served love-seekers for 1,300 years, allowing visitors to pray for help from various gods, either to fend off love rivals or increase the longevity of a current relationship. If you're seeking true love, however, you'll have to traverse the space between two magical "love stones" with your eyes closed. Legend has it that if you manage to find the second stone, placed 10 m (32.8 ft) from the first, your wishes for love will be granted.
