About Fushimi Inari Shrine

Fushimi Inari Shrine is an important Shinto shrine located in the southern district of Kyoto, Japan. It’s instantly recognisable by its thousands of coloured Torii gates of varying sizes which form a network of trails behind the main structures. The trails lead to the forest of Mount Inari which offers spectacular views of the shrine and across the city of Kyoto.

The Torii gates of Fushimi Inari Shrine date back to around 711 AD, and there are over 10,000 of them in total lining the grounds. The gates were built as the entrance to the sacred shrine to honour Inari the Shinto god of rice and are an important symbol of the Shinto religion and of Japanese history. Each gate has been donated by a Japanese business and messages of hope for the future are engraved on each pillar. The trek through the Torii gates to Mount Inari can be quite arduous, as it takes a few hours to complete the circuit, however, visitors can turn around at any time with snacks and refreshments stops along the route. If visitors can make it to the summit or three quarters of the way to the Yotsutsuji Intersection, the views of Kyoto and the countryside are truly breathtaking. Many visitors solely visit Fushimi Inari Shrine to see the Torii gates and walk the trail, but don’t miss out on viewing the temples and shrines, as the interiors are also well worth a visit.

Fushimi Inari Shrine is served by JR Inari Station with a journey only minutes from Kyoto Station on the JR Nara Line. Visitors can disembark at Tofukuji and visit the temples of Sennyu-ji and Tofukuji and walk the remaining distance to Fushimi Inari Shrine which takes around half an hour.

One of the earliest structures of the Fushimi Inari Shrine was built on Inariyama Hill but was relocated by the request of a prominent monk to its current location. Foxes roam the mountain trail and are said to be messengers of Inari the rice god. There are sculptures of them all around the shrine and are said to symbolise the rice granary. Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Japan’s top tourist attractions, each year drawing several million visitors eager to walk the trail from Japan and the rest of the world.
