The Fushimi Inari Shrine is at the base of Mount Inari and has trails up the mountain to many smaller shrines which span 4 kilometers and takes about 2 hours to walk up – we didn’t make it the whole way!
Inari is the god of rice. Since early Japan, Inari was seen as the patron of business, and merchants and manufacturers have traditionally worshipped Inari. Each of the torii at Fushimi Inari Taisha is donated by a Japanese business. There are thousands of them!
There were also lots of little shrines off to the sides of the main path.
