Seimei Shrine, Kyoto, Japan

This shrine is dedicated to the famous Abe no Seimei. He was a legendary Onmyouji who was rumored to be half fox. This might remind you of a western magician who was also rumored to have otherworldly parentage, Merlin. Seimei-sama is one of my favorite personages out of the Japanese history (yes, he was a real person).
