An unexpected lull in the crowds at Fushimi- Inari

An unexpected lull in the crowds at Fushimi- Inari

As I was getting increasingly frustrated with the surging crowds at the Fushimi- Inari shrine which seemed to keep on coming in unabated, I was able to enjoy an unexpected lull in the crowds. What a relief! The lull lasted a few micro seconds though. Detailed notes about the Fushimi- Inari shrine appeared earlier in this album. (see previous pictures). Inari was originally and remains primarily the kami of rice and agriculture, but merchants and manufacturers also worship Inari as the patron of business. Each of Fushimi Inari's roughly thousand vermilion torii gates was donated by a Japanese business. Owing to the popularity of Inari's division and re-enshrinement, this shrine is said to have as many as 32,000 sub-shrines, spread out throughout Japan. (Kyoto, Japan, Apr/ May 2019)
