Is the Susanoo Shrine built in a location that is resistant to flood damage? We took a look at the enshrined deity and used satellite data to examine the city it is in.

In this article, we will be using the satellite data platform "Tellus" to look into a series of shrines called the Yasaka Shrines, which have both Buddhist and Shinto aspects to them. We will look specifically at their Hikawa sect which enshrines the deity Susanoo. Looking at Shrines From Space! Pretty Cool, Eh?
