Around Zentsuji City
This is Mt. Koshiki Inari Daimyojin Shrine. "Inari Daimyojin" refers to an object of veneration that resulted from a syncretic combination of deities native to Japan and Dakini of Shingon esoteric Buddhism. It is said that she brings about abundant crops and good fortune to ward off disaster, and as she shares a deep relationship with the Daieyo (festival) at Zentsu-ji, she was transferred here for worship in 1775 in the Edo period. The current building was reestablished in 1986, and the large “torii” gate was completed in 1976. Additionally, visitors can reach its “inner shrine” on the mountain side of Mt. Koshiki by proceeding down the path behind it.
