Marvel at the Colourful Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine
Situated in Southern Kyoto at the base of Mount Inari is the most important Shinto shrine in Kyoto. Founded in the year 711, Fushimi Inari Taisha is the head shrine of Inari Ōkami, the God of rice, tea, sake, foxes (messengers of the Gods), prosperity, success and agriculture. As it’s the most popular shrine in Kyoto, we recommend visiting in the late afternoon or early evening to avoid the mass crowds. Thousands of visitors gather at this shrine to pray for their harvests to flourish, their businesses to be successful and for all of their dreams to come true.
