Welcome to the Fushimi Inari shrine. Shone above are just a very few of the 1,000 Torii Gates that are the most famous feature of this shrine.

But Fishimi Inari is much more than just Torii Gates, it’s also an entire mountain, and it is littered with hundreds of shrines, some very small some clustered together. The next few posts will all be of Fushimi Inari.

Millions of people visit Mount Fushimi Inari every year, and thousands reach the summit, and I’m quite proud to say I was one of them this year.
