Enjoy a visit to the traditonal Fushimi Inari shrine, situated on the hills of Mount Inari. Originally a religious site dedicated to the deity of rice, today the shrine is considered a fortuitous location to seek blessings for prosperity. Many people that have their wishes grant dedicated a torii at the site as a show of thanks. Pass through the pathway leading up to the shrine, walking beneath the thousands of bright red torii covering the trail. This eye-catching sight is a favorite shooting location for TV and film crews.
