In the compound is also the shrine Utsukushi Gozen Sha 美御前社
with three beautiful female deities:

Ichikishima Hime no Mikoto 杵島比売命 - 中津島姫命 Nakatsushima hime no mikoto
Tagiri Hime no Mikoto  多岐理比売命
Tagitsu Hime no Mikoto   多岐津比売命

To say prayers in front of them will bring beauty, beautiful skin and a beautiful heart to the person - like a spiritual "beauty liquid" 美容水 from the nearby well.

Utsukushiki-gozen Shrine and Beauty Water
Visiting the Shrine of Beauty, the Guardian Deity of Beauty in Kyoto


Standing on the east side of the main hall of Yasaka Shrine, the Utsukushi-gozen Shrine, is dedicated to three female deities of beauty: Ichikishima-hime-no-kami, Tagiri-hime-no-kami, and Tagitsu-hime-no-kami. It is said that if you visit this shrine you will be blessed with beauty in both mind and body and it is well known that many young women, including the geisha and maiko, female Japanese dancers of Gion, come to visit the shrine.
In addition, it is said that if you wash your hands and face with the "beauty water" from the spring on the grounds, your skin and heart will be beautified.

日本第一美麗神 The Most Beautiful Deity of Japan

- quote
. . . Its main selling point is that the kami specialises in women’s beauty, and the ema votive tablets are accordingly shaped like a mirror. Female visitors are invited to draw their face on the front and write down a request to become more beautiful. The ema are then displayed in front of the shrine.
Kawai Jinja also celebrates its connection with Kamo no Chomei (1153-1216) . . .
