Came to pay homage and ask for blessings on 1-1-2024. The atmosphere is shady, clean and beautiful.

It's a shrine. There is a shrine in the middle of Fukushima city. I visited this place while exploring the city of Fukushima. There was a large wooden torii gate at the entrance. There were remnants of the New Year's visit, and many people were lining up to worship. The main shrine was a large and beautiful building. I went back to visit. As I walked around the grounds, I saw cherry blossom trees, maple trees, and shelves of wisteria flowers, making it seem like a place where you can enjoy flowers and trees throughout the year. I would like to visit in another season.

I went to New Year's visit to Mikkabi with my family. I was unable to take a good look at the shrine due to the long line until I went to worship. I received the goshuin stamp for New Year's.

Fukushima Inari Shrine, located in Fukushima City, Fukushima Prefecture, has a large torii gate made of cypress, and the shrine grounds are well-maintained and have a strong presence. is located in Bitchu Takamatsu, present-day Okayama City. It is one of the three major Inari shrines in Japan, along with Kyoto's Fushimi Inari Shrine (Kanpei Taisha) and Aichi's Toyokawa Inari (Soto sect). It was built in the 4th year of Tenpyo Shoho (752) to commemorate Emperor Koken's recovery from illness, when Hoon Hoshi secluded himself in Hachitatami Rock in the mountains, perceived the supreme Sutra King Daibodhisattva, and made a complete recovery from his illness. This is the origin of Motoyama. Okayama Honzan is a Nichiren sect, but the object of worship is a mixture of Shinto and Buddhist deities. In 1928, our predecessors from the Kitamachi, Miyamachi, and Nakamachi areas, then known as Kitai, were relocated from the main temple to this area, and through the changes of the times and twists and turns, we have grown into what we are today. It has been reached. The object of worship is a beautiful goddess who holds rice and a sickle in her hands and rides a fox. At that time, the Kitai (Kitamachi, Miyamachi, Nakamachi) area was a so-called red light district (restaurants, waiting rooms, geisha houses, etc.) and was Fukushima's premier entertainment district. The geishas who work in these hanamachi areas pray for prosperous business, and for the geishas who work here day and night to meet good customers, and they pray every day for the annual summer festival (July 25th at that time). This is Inari-sama, who has encouraged donations and protected the shrine with great care. She is said to be the goddess of good harvest, business prosperity, family safety, and especially in recent years, marriage and rejuvenation for women.For those who like power spots, historical buildings, making wishes, praying for victory, and collecting goshuin stamps. it's recommended. We sell goshuin stamps, various amulets, horse racing winning amulets, etc. at the right-hand shrine office.

It was windy on Saturday, November 18th, but the maple leaves were beautiful. There were also many Shichi-Go-San families.
