The incredible Fushimi Inari-Taisha is located in the southern part of Kyoto, Japan and is an important Shinto Shrine dedicated to Inari, the god of rice. The shrine sits at the bottom of Inari Mountain and contains 1,000 vermilon torii gates, as shown in the picture. While visiting the shrine, be on the look-out for fox statues, as they are said to be the messenger of the god Inari.
