Yutoku Inari Shrine
This elaborate shrine complex in Kashima, Saga, is one of the three major shrines dedicated to Inari, the deity of rice and successful business. Nestled within greenery, its vivid vermillion buildings that climb the mountainside are an impressive sight.
A line of red torii gates lead visitors to the top of the mountain, where a small shrine building, Okunoin, offers views over the whole district. In spring, the shrine grounds are dotted with around 50,000 colorful azalea shrubs and wisteria trees.
