Taikodani Inari Jinja Shrine 太皷谷稲成神社


tu569-20180103-4355.jpg

Nicknamed Tsuwano O-Inarisan, Taikodani Inari Jinja is one of Japan's Top Five Inari shrines noted for many vermillion torii gates along the path to the shrine. Almost like a sister shrine to the famous Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto. The shrine worships Uka-no-Mitama, a deity associated with food and agriculture, and the goddess Izanami. It is Shimane Prefecture's second most popular shrine after Izumo Taisha. About a 20-min. walk from JR Tsuwano Station.
