What to expect?

Our nationally-licensed and experienced multilingual tour guides will introduce you to the background of Japan that most tourists do not get to see. This short but value-packed trip is a fantastic way of experiencing Fushimi Inari Taisha shrine!

We are here to help you discover new things, as Fushimi Inari Taisha is so much more than its famous tunnels of vermillion-red torii gates. Although most people are satisfied with simply its view, this shrine has countless stories to tell that will paint you a picture of Japan’s history and culture which your guide can explain in depth. For example, Fushimi Inari Taisha was originally dedicated to the god of “Inari”, meaning rice, and is surrounded by statues of foxes, which were thought to be servants to the god Inari. They are cunning animals who you would want on your side in the world of business, as rice was once viewed as a measure of prosperity.

Try to time your visit for the Japanese New Year, when it is said that Fushimi Inari Taisha draws several million worshippers, the most visitors of any shrine in Japan!

Note*1: The Nationally-licensed Tour Guide-Interpreter certification is issued by the Japanese government requires a good knowledge and understanding of Japanese culture and history.
