Motonosumi-Inari Shrine

Motonosumi Inari Shrine is located in the city of Nagato in the Yamaguchi Prefecture. It is has been listed by CNN as one of the top 31 beautiful places in Japan. There are 123 red torii gates going down a mountain side towards the Sea of Japan with beautiful greenery surrounding them. The torii gates stretch out over 100 meters (328 feet) and are a great contrast to the area. Motonosumi Inari Shrine houses the sacred spirits that left the Taikodani Inari Shrine in Shimane Prefecture. The Shinto shrine shows the perfect balance and appreciation of nature.

The Motonosumi Inari Shrine was established in 1955. It is said that a God disguised as white fox visited a fisherman in a dream and told him to enshrine them in the area. Those who walk through the tunnel of torii gates wish for success in business, good catch in fishing, and safe voyage. However, the deity residing there is said to grant a wider variety of wishes like a good match in relationships or having a baby. The offertory box is in an unusual place compared to most shrines. Instead of being on the ground it is located at the top of shrine gate. It is said that if you were to throw your money and make it into the box then your wish will come true.
