Nino mine Goshin seki ニノ峰
Sata hiko no Ohkami is enshrined. He brings us good fortune.
At Nino mine, mirrors of the 4th century were excavated. They revealed the Mt. Inari used to be a “Kofun”, an ancient tomb.
We head for Sannno mine.
Kada sha Goshin seki 荷田社
Ise no Ohkami, a.k.a. Amaterasu Ohmikami is ensrined. We can see very rare torii gate here. Ii is “Nune torii”. There is a triangle in the torii. As far as I know, we have two Nune torii in Shinto shrine. Kasa sha and Nishiki tenmangu.
Sanno mine Goshin seki 三ノ峯
Ukano Mitamano kami, a.k.a. Inari no Ohkami is enshrined here.
Yotsu tsuji crossing 四つ辻
We are Yotsu tsuji crossing again. Now turn left.
Kojin mine Goshen seki 荒神峰
Ohnamuchi, a.k.a. Daikokuten is enshrined.
After Kojin mine, we climb down the mountain to Mitsu tsuji again.
Mitsu tsuji crossing 三つ辻
Now we are Mistu tsuji again. This time, we turn left.
Araki shrine 荒木神社
Couples of minutes later, we arrive at Araki shrine.
At Kuchi ire Inari, a sub shrine of Araki Inari, we can see Kawaii foxes.
The fox standing with lantern in his hand is “Banto san”. He leads the married couple behind him.
If we have wish, we ask these figurines and bring back our homes.
Lots of Kawaii souvenirs.
Sanba inari 産場稲荷
We climb down the mountain again, we reach “Sanba Inari”. The word “Sanba” means ” A place we give birth to child”. The wish we asked to the Deities in Oyama meguri is born here and the tour is finished.
In front of the gate, we can see the house.
The arrow on the house indicates the way to Fushimi Inari Taisha.
