伏見稲荷大社の象徴、朱色の鳥居と白い狐

1300年以上続く五穀豊穣の神様として信仰を集める稲荷神社。全国に30,000社以上ある稲荷神社の総本宮でもある。伏見稲荷大社の象徴は朱塗りの鳥居と白狐。鳥居や社殿の朱色は魔力に対抗する色ともされ、稲荷大神の豊穣を表す色とされている。また狐は稲荷大神の使いとされており、穀物を荒らすネズミを捕食すること、色や尻尾の形が実った稲穂に似ていることから、キツネが使いになったともいわれている。「楼門」の両側には魔除けとして一般的な狛犬の代わりに、伏見稲荷では一対の白狐が置かれている。

伏見稲荷の名所、千本鳥居

名所となっている「千本鳥居」ができたのは、江戸時代から、参拝した人の願い事が「通る」或いは「通った」御礼として、鳥居を奉納する習慣が広まったことによる。今では約1万基の鳥居が参道全体に並んでおり、現在でも鳥居奉納の信仰は続いている。農民にとっての五穀豊穣は、商人にとっての商売繁盛という考えから、江戸時代以降は商売繁盛の神様としても崇められた。境内は稲荷山にまで広がる約87万平方メートルもあり、一周するには2時間以上を要する。千本鳥居は、本殿からすぐの場所にある。そこからさらに山頂を目指して「四つ辻」までいくと、そこからの京都市内の眺望は見事で、茶店では休憩もできる。境内は24時間開放されているが、夜間の参拝は灯りが少なく石段も多いので昼間の参拝がお勧めだ。

Through 10,000 gates
You should save plenty of time when visiting this interesting and large temple. The temple itself next to the station is big and interesting but I felt the most mesmerizing part of the trip was walking up to the mountain and seeing thousands of gates in a row, then continuing to walk up the forest trails seeing smaller shrines along it.

Amazing Torii walk!
I've visited Kyoto many times before I visit Fushimi Inari Shrine. Should've visit sooner! The Torii walk here is probably one of great eye-catching spot in Japan. I'd suggest you come here in the morning since it will be crowded from noon. Here, Fox is considered to be the messenger of Inari so you can also find a lot of symbolic design crafts around this area.

Amazing Scene
This shrine is so beautiful. There are many tourists because this is one of the most famous tourist spots in Kyoto, but you should definitely visit here. It's better to prepare to climb, and early morning is better to avoid crowds. You can enjoy hike with amazing scene. I think it's one of the best places to take photos.

Highlight of my trip
The Fushimi Inari Shrine is located only a few stops away from the city Kyoto itself. What was so special about this shrine were the many tori gates that lead you up the mountain. I visited the place in the middle of the summer with temperatures rising to 40 degrees celsius. It was very hot and humid, and the many stairs were not difficult to climb but overall it took me about 2 hours to go up and down again. I do not recommend this for kids if you want to go all the way up and down again. Nevertheless, there were some small shops that sold cold beverages and snack on the way. My favorite part where the little wooden fox prayer blocks where you can write your wish on, so cute!

Breathtaking nature
A very worthwhile visit. You can enjoy amazing views over Kyoto while exploring the never ending red tori gates. The front is quite packed with tourists but as you continue down the path, the number of people becomes less and less. There is also no entry fee so its a nice free trip.

This is what you came to Kyoto to see
Trust me, you came to Japan, and more importantly to Kyoto, to see sights like this. 10,000 Torii gates lined up, one after another is quite a sight. Even more so when you walk through them. The mountain itself is quite steep and has multiple paths you can take to the top. The top is not thaaaaat impressive itself, but its a beautiful trek up a beautiful mountain. The forest all around the area is absolutely gorgeous. Summer brings out shades of green you may never have seen. Though beware. In summer, the trek will make you sweat. Wear shorts. Or anything but jeans. Doooo iiiiiit.
