Branch Shrine of Kyoto Fushimi Inari-taisha

Established in Kamakura era (1249-1256),  Odomo Inari inner shrine has been admired by many people. It’s actually a branch shrine of Kyoto Fushimi Inari-taisha and quietly still standing in the shadowy grove where rice field surrounds.


Mysitic Place

Although the scale is small compared with Fushimi Inari-taisha, you can enjoy passing through a lot of Torii gate here. As these photos show, the main attraction is its mystic atmosphere of the place where possibly Yōkai monsters still live. This place has totally not commercialized yet, so you can feel the spookiness as it is. I recommend to go there at sunset because crows caw to add some spice to the atmosphere if you’re lucky.

This kind of atmosphere is also an unique attraction of good old Japan. It’s sadly in the middle of fading away little by little as Japan modernizes. I hope it remains here for long.
