The total main shrine of Fushimi Shrine, also known as "Inari shrine" is actually one large shrine with trails up the mountain that branch off and lead to dozens of smaller shrines tucked away in the serene bamboo. It was founded in 711 by Qin Riku and people have gathered here for over 1300 years.
Approximately 150,000 meters from the temple to Okusha, and about 10,000 red torii torches filled with prayers. It continues to be visited and stands from the Edo period as a proof of Inari faith. Walking off some of the side trails can lead you deep into bamboo clearings giving you an enchanting sensation.
