Fushimi-Inari-Taisha is the head shrine of some 30,000 Inari-jinja shrines of Japan.

Thousands of vermillion torii gateways and a lot of small shrines and stone monuments in its precinct make the atmosphere of the big Shinto shrine quite unique and interesting.

The big shrine spreads on a hillside and visitors should prepare for about two hours of walk ups and downs on stone stairways.


The history of Fushimi-Inari Taisha is not very clear. It is said to have been founded in the year 711 by HATA-no-Iroko (or, Irogu). Inari God was enshrined in three seats. i.e. Ue-no-yashiro (Upper shrine), Naka-no-yashiro (Middle shrine) and Shita-no-yashiro (Lower shrine). Later, two more were added. Those are Tanaka-sha and Shi-no-Okami.

All of the building was reduced to ashes on March 21, 1468 by fire of the Onin Civil War.

Honden, the main hall, was built in 1499 on the lower ground of the precinct and five seats were moved and enshrined together in the new hall. Since then, the places where the five gods had been enshrined (i.e. Ue-no-Yashiro, etc.) are called Shinseki, a (previous) site of god.
