[Kyoto] the Fushimi Inari Taisha

(Fushimi Inari Taisha – Canon 1100D)

We headed for the Fushimi Inari shrine just before daylight was fully spent to see the orange Torri gates. After having to rely on our maps the whole afternoon, it was nice to find the shrine located just outside the Inari Railway Station (on the Nara line).

Foxes are believed to be the mesengers of Inari, the Shinto god of rice.
