Famous Shrine U Must Go In Kyoto (Don't Miss Out Guys)
Konnichiwa everyone, looking for a place to eat and sightseeing in Kyoto? I would strongly recommend you to Fushimi, Kyoto. Fushimi Inari Shrine(伏見稲荷大社, Fushimi Inari -Taisha)must be the best place for you.
Fushimi Inari-Taisha has been listed as one of the most visited attractions in Japan. Unfortunately, the most attracting part of Fushimi Inari-Taisha would be the gates inside Fushimi Inari-Taisha Shrine.
What’s actually all these gates about and what’s so special?
These Torri gates are called Senbon Torii. Along with the main path, there are likely around 10,000 Torri around the shrine. These Torii gates were all donated by a national organization, local businesses or tourists from all around the world. If you would like to donate a Torii gate, the price is started from 400,000 ¥ for a small one and up to over a million ¥ for a large Torii gate. Each Torii gate will be etched in black on one side with the contributor or donor’s name, business and year they make the donation.
For peoples who willing to do a small donation, you could donate a mini-sized Torii gate to the shrine. It would be hanged around the sub-shrines in Fushimi Inari-Taisha. The price for a mini-sized Torii gate is much more affordable, it would only cost you around 800¥ per gate. You could also write down your name, business and year on the mini-size Torri gate individually with a marker pen. If you wish to make some wishes or do some prayer, you could get yourself a piece of fox wooden wishing plaques(ema) to write down your name, date, business and your wishes on it. These of fox wooden wishing plaques(ema) can be purchased at the shrine with around 500¥ per piece of fox wooden wishing plaques(ema). If there is any error part, hope you guys forgive and leave some comments below. Thankyou
