The reason for so many Torii in Hushimiinaritaisha

Why are there so many toriis in Hushimiinritaisha? Don’t you think it’s very miraculous? I’ll tip off about it. Then, Let’s see a cue that toriis were built here. 

The place that has Senbon torii in Hushimiinaritaisha is the very entrance to Mr. Inani which is the object of worship itself. Mt. Inani is a holy place that the God descends.

Many toriis were built as things which leads  the world of humans to the world of God. It is said that they have been built from the Edo period to Meiji period. Thereafter, people that visit Hushimiinaritaisha increased. The God (oinanisan)  is very warmhearted, and shows strong power to grant people’s wishes. 




However, the God got angry !  Most of people didn’t come back to give the God thanks although their wishes came true. Then, The god told people to build torii when their wishes came true. They say that it has a token rule when people build a torii, which should be small at first, and becomes bigger and bigger every time the god makes their wishes come true.

This custom spread nationwide. And then the number of torii increased more and more. 

The benefits of Senbon Torii

When you go to a person you like very much or love, what do you do first? Maybe, you will dress up, makeup your face if you are a woman, set your hair, and smile in a mirror. Walking through under toriis means that you are approaching the God. What I want to tell you is that your spirit is purified as you walk under torii arch. You also get special power from toriis, which were built there with people’s feelings gratitude. These were built by people whom the god granted their wishes. So Toriis here have drastic power. It takes 2 hours to go to the top of Mt. Inani from the entrance and to go back to the entrance.  The top of Mt. Inani commands a fine view of Kyoto. Why don’t you try?

What time is best to visit Hushimiinaritaisha ?

After all is said and done, highlight of this place is the approach under Senbon-torii ! Attraction of Senbon-torii is that you can enjoy difference scene at different time. When I went to Senbon-torii in the early morning, I was impressed by the beautiful collaboration of Senbon-torii with the morning sun. Sunshine filtering through Senbon-torii which is fully stuffed reminds me of a heavenly god who descended to earth. I do recommend to visit Senbon-torii in the early morning to you. It’s so beautiful ! Furthermore,  it is also nice to visit at night. They don’t close the gate and you can enjoy it all day long. The place is lit up in the night, so you can taste of different atmosphere compared with day time. Why don’t you go with your girlfriend or boyfriend. I’m sure that Senbon-torii at night will give you an illusion of  leading you to a different spacial dimension.
