After the sake museum, the weather seemed to be okay, so we went to Fushimi Inari Taisha, a huge shrine to the goddess Inari. There are thousands of huge, red torii at this shrine.
My mom at Fushimi Inari Station.
Cute chicks that look like they are about ready to leave the nest.
Here are Mom, Brittany, and Teddy standing in front of one of the gates to Fushimi Inari Taisha.
We saw these really cool taiyaki parfaits. I had to try it. I got strawberry caramel.
Kyoto was supposed to get rain and high winds from the typhoon, so the staff at the shrine prepare the lanterns by tying them down.
This building contains one of the main altars at the shrine.
Here is a close-up of the decorations on that building.
Foxes are the messengers of Inari. Here are cute fox shaped enma, or prayer plaques, where you write your prayer and draw the fox’s face.
Brittany, Mom, and me in the gates of Fushimi Inari Taisha.
Here are more of the gates.
The shrine is built on a mountain.
Well, that is all for Fushimi Inari Taisha. The next post will be about our return to our old neighborhood.
