Fushimi-Inari-Taisha Shrine

Temple in Kyoto, Japan

Also known as “O-inari-san”, Inari shrines are the most familiar shrines to Japanese people. Fushimi Inari Taisha is the head shrine with which all the others are affiliated.

In the 1300 years since its establishment in 711AD, people have gathered here to pray for bountiful harvests, business prosperity, the safety of their home and family and the fulfilment of all kinds of other wishes.

In recent years, the shrine’s Japanese worshippers have been joined by overseas visitors coming to pray or tour the shrine. Fushimi Inari Taisha is now known worldwide as one of the most iconic sights in Kyoto, and in Japan as a whole.
