If Japan is your next vacation destination, be sure to put the Fushimi Inari Shrine on your "sites-to-see" list. The Shinto shrine, which is located in Kyoto, was founded in 711 AD and is situated at the base of the mountain Inari. People from all over Japan and the rest of the world visit the shrine, especially during the Japanese new year, to see its beauty and worship the god Inari, best known for being the god of rice. A statue of a fox with a key in its mouth, representing the key for the rice granary, stands guard outside the main gate to the Fushimi Inari Shrine for all visitors to admire.
