Basic data

Facility summary and accessibility conditions

It's counted as one of the five major Inari shrines in Japan.
It's believed to be a shrine for wishes to come true.
There is a custom to offer fried tofu and candles, because fried tofu is the favorite food for the foxes, believed to be the servants of the Spirit.
About 1,000 vermillion-colored torii form a tunnel.
The shrine is about 300 meters past those torii.
It has a dynamic view both from inside and outside.
The torii tunnel has stone stairs, but you can come by car up to the main shrine.
Upon prior contact, the staff will support you to go up the stairs from the parking space to the grounds.

Inspector’s comments

A visually impaired person (full blindness) / Female
There are stone stairs called Senbon Torii, but it’s also possible to get close to the grounds by car.
I felt there’s a positive stance toward people with disabilities.
