Takayama Inari Shrine
Located right at the center of the mountain, views of the Sea of Japan, Mt Iwakiyama, and Lake Jusanko are visible from the shrine, where worshippers stop by and pray for safety in sea travels, abundant harvests, and success in business. Just like the Fushimi-Inari Shrine, which is the main shrine of the God Inari, Takayama Inari Shrine venerates the three pillars Ukanomitama, Satahiko, and Omiya. Entering the precints of this shrine involves climbing over a hundred stone steps while passing through the red torii gates, which are in a curved path.
