Torii at Fushimi-Inari Taisha - Kyoto - Japan

Fushimi Inari Taisha (伏見稲荷大社, Fushimi Inari Taisha?) is the head shrine of Inari, located in Fushimi-ku, Kyoto, Japan. The shrine sits at the base of a mountain also named Inari, and includes trails up the mountain to many smaller shrines.


Merchants and manufacturers worship Inari for wealth. Donated torii lining footpaths are part of the scenic view.
