Story & Recommendation
The Inari God makes a parade to give blessing to local people
Inari festival starting from ‘Shinko festival’ (April 19th) to ‘Kanko festival’ (May 3th) is held at Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine. The god of Inari makes a tour around Ujiko area (where local people who believes in Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine are living) and gives blessing to them. Inari festival is the most important festival in Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine. Trucks caring 5 portable shrines with holy god, priests and accompanying followers parades on to Otabisho. Otabisho is the temporary place where the portable shrines are being located until Kanko festival ends. Traditional Inari festival has been continued for more 1000 years and crowded with a lot of people every year. Once, it was said that 1/3 area of Kyoto was Ujiko area and Otabisho was located on Ujiko area. Otabisho was an important place which connects people who are living in center of Kyoto and other outside the city.
