What you'll do

We will explain the history of Fushimi Inari and the manner of worship. Explain the Japanese mind about Senbon Torii. The area is very dark and there are few people. You can walk with confidence even on dark roads thanks to the lanterns. If you walk with a lantern in the dark Senbon Torii, you can take a very impressive picture. I will help you to get the best picture. Put the lanterns down and line it up like a footlight and you'll get a nice photo. I will go to the back office. There is a stone called Omokaru-ishi. I will explain the stone. Continue through the Senbon Torii, pass through the Mitsutsuji and climb up the steep slope. You can see the night view of Fushimi on the way . Then go up steep hills and stairs to Yostutsuji. And we go to open space where we can see the night view only local people know. You can see the view of Kyoto and Fushimi on the square, but it is a place that tourists hardly know. Take a break while watching the night scene and return the same way. The tour ends when you return to the main hall. There are steep slopes and stone steps up to Yostustuji, and it is possible to change the course on the way according to the customer's wishes.

I was born and grew up in Kyoto. Since I started my accommodation near Fushimi Inari three years ago, I started to like Fushimi Inari.And I moved to the immediate side of Fushimi Inari shrine. By going to Fushimi Inari almost everyday, I studied Fushimi Inari and studied.Fushimi Inari at night is also very attractive. At night, Senbon Torii becomes a very mysterious space. But at night Fushimi Inari is very dim with few lights. There are many people who feel scared to walk in the nightly Senbon Torii, and sometimes it is dangerous. In old Japan, when I walked at night, I used to light lanterns

Where you'll be

I think that everyone has a god who is believed. Please think that prayers at the shrine are experiences rather than religious faiths. Let's experience one of the traditional Japanese rituals together. The Japanese decide a wish before receiving prayers. It is a typical wish. ・Peace to the household ・Prosperity to the business ・Prayer for school success ・Prayer for Good match When I receive a prayer, I feel fresh as if my heart was washed. Fushim
