Fushimi Inari Shrine

The Fushimi Inari Shrine is dedicated to Inari, the Shinto god of rice. Foxes are thought of as messengers to Inari and as a tribute, fox statues are places all over the shrine grounds. Perhaps the most striking feature of the shrine is the bright red and famous Senbon Torii gates. There are a total of 1,400 torii gates placed very closed to each other while creating a fascinatingly beautiful effect that covers a hiking trail. The trail goes uphill and visitors can walk as far (or short) as they wish before turning back.

Fushimi Inari Shrine is located right outside the JR Inari Station.
