Fushimi Inari grand Shrine
The Fushimi Inari Taisha (grand shrine )was founded in 711.
This is the head shrine of Inari shrines enshrined throughout the country.
Business and family safety
Originally, Inari was worshipped as a god of agriculture, but during the medieval and early modern periods, it came to be widely worshipped as a god of business prosperity and family safety.
The distinctive fox image is because the fox is thought to be a servant of God.
It is because it helps rice cultivation by exterminating rats and insects that hinder the growth of rice.
10,000 vermilion Torii gates
The shrine is famous for its countless beautiful vermilion Torii gates.
It is said that there are about 10,000 Torii gates in the entire Fushimi Inari grand shrine.
After a 10-minute walk from the entrance, the Senbon-torii ( 1000 Torii fatea) gateway appears.
There are 2 paths to go in. ( nowadays you should proceed right way though)
Many visitors from overseas come to Japan to see the Senbon-Torii, which divides into two paths mysteriously !
Gratitude for God
They were built in gratitude for the fact that people’s wishes were granted at this shrine.
The “vermilion tunnel” formed by rows of Torii gates.
It creates such a fantastic sight that you may think you have wandered into another world.

I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
