Let’s challenge the Japanese style ceremony at the main shrine.
A basic manner of prayer is ‘Twice bowing, twice clapping and one-time bowing.’

Senbon Torii(Thousand Torii)

I went around the main hall and walk in the Senbon Torii(Thousand Torii).
These torii were dedicated with wishes.
Or these torii were dedicated to the mark of appreciation of wish.
Let’s visit worshiping while thinking “gratitude feeling” that was put in a big torii.

Torii is divided into two from the middle.

Proceed the right side and visit “Okusha main shrine”.
Let’s listen to God with “Omokaru-stone” as to whether the wish will come true.
When coming back from the left side, it will be a course of over an hour

There are many “Otuka” beside the approach path

People who worshiped Inari Okami under different names engraved these names onto stones and left them as offerings to the holy mountain. These stones are called otsuka.
It is each faith by each person.

Although I came to pray to deity, I am climbing up or hiking…
I decided to think.
I am glad because I can meet many deities as I walked!

Arrived at Ichinomiya (the top of Inari mountain)

I managed to reach the top of Inari mountain (233 m).
There are lots of “Otuka” around this.

It is good to go round the “Mitsurugisha (Chojasha Shinseki)” and descend.
But I found a sign of “It’s 10 minutes earlier if you go this way.”
This way is the way I climbed up.
I chose shortcuts with a sense of accomplishment and fatigue that climbed Mount Inari’s top.

The lights are on along the approaching path.

About two hours, I was able to visit Fushimi-Inari Taisha Shrine like this.
Fushimi-Inari Taisha Shrine is not a “tourist resort” but a “place of prayer for ordinary people”.
keep that in mind and let’s visit.
