Fushimi Inari-taisha shrine.

Fushimi Inari-taisha shrine, in Fushimi-ku, Kyoto, Japan. The shrine sits at the base of a mountain also named Inari. First and foremost, Inari is the kami of rice, but merchants and manufacturers have traditionally worshiped Inari as the patron of business. Each of the tori at Fushimi Inari-taisha has been donated by a Japanese business. The shrine became the object of imperial patronage during the early Heian period. In 965, Emperor Murakami decreed that messengers carry written accounts of important events to the guardian kami of Japan. The earliest structures were built in 711 on the Inariyama hill in south-western Kyoto, but the shrine was re-located in 816 on the request of the monk Kukai. The main shrine structure was built in 1499.
