Fox in Fusimi Inari Taisha 伏見稲荷大社のキツネ

Why foxes are there?

ema_GF

There’s a story. A long time ago, a white fox couple lived near Mt. Funaoka (We can locate it near Kinkakuji temple today.). They always wished that they had help people in despair. One day, they went to Fushimi Ianri Taisha with their five children to ask Inari no oh kami the way to take.

She answered: “Now you are my “Kenzoku”, the animals serve for and help Deities in the Shinto, and you take advantage of anything I have to save people in suffer.”

Since then, they live in Fushimi Inari Taisha.

The things the foxes have in the mouth
