Moto Nosumi Inari Shrine

A shrine chosen by America’s CNN as one of the 31 Most Beautiful Sites to Visit in Japan

The 123 red “torii” gates were donated to the shrine over a period of 10 years starting from 1987. The sight of the tunnel of red gates continuing on for more than 100m is awe inspiring. If you can manage to throw your coin into the donation box located on the top of the torii gate at the entrance to the path leading to the shrine, then your wish will come true.
