Fushimi Inari Shrine is a Shinto shrine. You might recognize the picture of the many torii gates. Many tourist are attracted to the beauty of this place. First, you walk through a big gate (donated by Toyotomi Hideyoshi), which is the entrance, and you can walk up the mountain through a trail up Mount Inari. If you hike up all the way, it can take over 2 hours, but it`s very beautiful. Each gate was donated by someone, and the gates have names enscribed in them. You can donate a gate too! The big gates are a little pricy though. The shrine is dedicated to the god of rice. There`s also a type of sushi called inari sushi, so if you`re interested and you like sushi, be sure to check it out.
