Fushimi Inari-Taisha

On day 7 I caught a local train to visit the famous Fushimi Inari-Taisha, a Shinto shrine. Inari is the Shinto spirit of foxes, (amongst other things) and you’ll find several statues of foxes in the temple grounds. The shops around the temple sell an ancient form of a fortune cookie.
