⛩ Lovely good luck charm Fushimi Inari Japanese Tori gate 伏見稲荷 ⛩
A torii (鳥居, literally bird abode, Japanese pronunciation: [to.ɾi.i]) is a traditional Japanese gate most commonly found at the entrance of or within a Shinto shrine, where it symbolically marks the transition from the profane to sacred.
Fushimi Inari Shrine (伏見稲荷大社, Fushimi Inari Taisha) is an important Shinto shrine in southern Kyoto. It is famous for its thousands of vermilion torii gates which straddle a network of trails behind its main buildings. To give a little background, a Torii gate is seen as an entrance to a sacred shrine in the Shinto religion. They mark the pathway to shrines across Asia, and I’m sure you’ve come to know them as a symbol of Japan. The significance of the shrines located at Fushimi Inari is to honor Inari (稲荷), the Shinto god of rice.
