Fushimi Inari Shrine Taisha sits at the base of Inari Mountain where there are trails up the mountain leading to many smaller shrines. Inari has been seen for centuries as the patron of business, and merchants and manufacturers have traditionally worshipped here. Proof of this is that all of the hundreds of torii at Fushimi Inari Taisha have been donated by a business. The earliest structures were built in 711 on the Inariyama hill in southwestern Kyoto. Foxes are regarded as messengers and found at Inari shrines. One attribute is a key - for rice granaries - in their mouths as Inari is the Shinto god of rice.
