The Torii of Fushimi Inari Taisha

Countless torii gates and a magnificent ambience

Located in Fushimi-ku, Kyoto, Fushimi Inari Taisha is the head shrine of Inari, the Japanese God of Foxes.

The shrine sits at the base of 233-meter-tall Mt. Inari and is the starting point of a 4-kilometer trail which leads up the mountain to many smaller shrines.

One of the aspects that attract large numbers of visitors, and for which this shrine is particularly famous, is the huge number of torii gates it has, each one donated by a Japanese business, as Inari is also the God of Prosperity.
