Just south of Kinkakuji is a shrine called Waratenjin, a Shinto shrine. During the cherry blossom period, the gardens of this shrine are popular with the Japanese for hanami outings. Rows of food stalls selling takoyaki and other delicacies do brisk business as families and friends gather around low tables with red table-cloths to enjoy hanami.
