Built 2100 years ago at the foot of Mount Hiei, this is the head shrine for the more than 3,000 Sanno shrines in the country. Hiyoshi Taisha Shrine is located in the northeastern (and therefore, unlucky) direction as seen from the ancient capital of Kyoto. So, as a protective shrine from this unlucky direction, it is known as beneficial in warding off evil.
