Motonosumi Inari Shrine
After a divine message from the white fox, this shrine was annexed in 1955 from Daikodani Inari Shrine in Tsuwano, Shimane Prefecture.
This shrine is dedicated to prospering businesses, large catches at sea, and maritime safety as well as matchmaking, children, warding off evil spirits and bringing good luck, wealth and happiness, traffic safety, academic achievements, and fulfilling wishes.
There are approximately 40,000 Inari shrines throughout Japan written with the character for load, but these are the only two Inari shrines that are written with the character for achievement.
The 123 torii shrine gates that down lead from Ryugu no Shiofuki (Dragon Palace Geyser) leave an exceptional impression. Look up when you reach the large torii shrine gate to find the offering box above your head!
Your wishes will come true if you can toss your offering into the box.
