Takayama Inari Shrine

Takayama Inari Shrine Picture
     Takayama Inari Shrine is famous throughout northern Japan and is revered as a very efficacious shrine for prayers dealing with maritime safety, bountiful harvests, and business prosperity.
     Its seemingly innumerable line of red torii gates is spectacular with the gatesf curves and twists being likened to those of a dragon.
     The shrine is dedicated to the god Inari, a popular deity among Japanese shrines, the most famous being the Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto.
     Every year, the shrine attracts many visitors during its Grand Spring Festival and during the New Yearfs holidays.
