Details
It is especially well known for the thousands of vermilion torii lining the paths on the hill on which the shrine is located. The torii gates are all donations from individuals, families or companies. The Inari spirit is considered to be the protector of grains, especially rice, and has thus historically been associated with wealth. Company officials often make offerings to the Inari shrines in the form of barrels of rice wine (sake) or torii gates. The Torii gates are wood and are replaced about every ten years. You may recognize Fushimi inari as it has represented Japan in countable movies, and books. It was also one of the sets for the movie " Memoirs of a Geisha" a novel written by Arthur Golden directed by Rob Marshall
