Kyoto Station 

[Fushimi Inari Shrine]

The headquarters of all Inari shrines in Japan

Countless red Shinto style gates stand from the top of Mt. Inari to the foot. It was purportedly completed in 711 A.D. as a dedication to the god of agriculture by the Hata clan that migrated from Korea. Today, Fushimi Inari is recognized as the god of commerce and prosperity drawing many visitors all the year round including New Year's. The remarkable architecture of Ro-mon (two-story gate) dedicated by Hideyoshi and main hall with Inari style sculptures are spectacular. A tunnel of thousands of red gates stretching from the main hall to the rear shrine is called the Senbon Torii. The hiking trail is 4 km long and approximately two hours walk.
