Shrine

Fushimi Inari Taisha

伏見稲荷大社

This shrine in Fushimi Ward, Kyoto City, is the head of all Inari Shrines in Japan, which total to around 30,000 shrines. The shrine is particularly famous for its vermillion lacquered Torii gate tunnels, as well as to parishioners visiting the god for business, harvest, and fortune. Many of the buildings on the grounds are also painted with brilliant vermillion lacquer including the front shrine, main shrine, and tower gate, which has been designated an Important Cultural Properties of Japan. The torii gate corridor, said to consist of several thousand to 10,000 torii gates, twists and turns making it quite the spectacle. Beyond that is the rear shrine as well as the entrance to Mt. Inari-san which is dotted with countless small burial mounds. It is one of the most famous spots in the Kansai region to visit for the annual New Year Shrine Visit and draws huge numbers of visitors every year.

    Many shrines in Asia, we noticed, are difficult to get to. This glorious temple as well is for fit and fine to climb. We tell you, only the fit may climb. more

    You do not climb for views

    You ought to get good views from the top. Not s! The views from midway are way better. No point climbing those steepe stairs. If you are hard-on walking, do not even think of coming here. more
