The Yūtoku Inari Shrine in Kashima City, Saga Prefecture, is the third largest Inari shrine in Japan. Strikingly majestic, it looks like something you would more commonly find in Kyoto or Nara. Perhaps this is not surprising considering that a princess from Kyoto, Manko Hime, had the shrine built in 1688 to honor Inari, the god of prosperity (as well as rice, tea, and sake). This is truly worth the trip if you are living in or spending any time in Saga Prefecture. There's a lot to take in, so reserve at least an entire day for your trip.
