Throwback to visiting Fushimi Inari shrine, the head shrine of the god Inari (the god of rice). Thousands of donated torii (gates) have the names of businesses painted on to bring them luck and prosperity spanning 4km up Mt. Inari.
The most amazing moment happened after hiking to the top of the mountain. There was a group of elders who all looked at least 70+ year old with some of them using walking sticks, some with severe kyphosis (hunchback), who had also hiked up this mountain! Literal jaw drop and inspiring moment. I hope I can stay that fit and healthy at that age! Unfortunately didn’t take a picture as I was just so stunned 😂

At Shinto shrines in Japan, you’ll find hanging wooden plaques (“ema”) where visitors write prayers and wishes. At Fushimi Inari in Kyoto, the deity is a fox, so all of the plaques are cut and decorated as such! 🦊 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
