Today's Picture: According to Shintoism, the fox-like Japanese gods, known as inari, bring prosperity to worshipers. For this reason, companies all over Japan have donated thousands of torii gates to Fushimi Inari Shrine. No one is exactly sure how many there are, but the thousands of gates lined up one after another are a sight to behold.
The shrine sits at the base of Mount Inari-san. After passing the Main Hall, you’ll find the entrance to Senbon Torii Trail. It’s a moderate, 5-kilometer trek that takes about two to three hours to complete. Along the way, you’ll see smaller shrines and restaurants serving local Kyoto dishes.
