Twilight (Post#10) : Fushimi Inari Taisha – Romon (Main Gate)
Photos of the day are all about Fushimi Inari Taisha Romon or Main Gate. I am featuring this gate here because it is another gate that has story behind it. But this time, unlike the Chion-In Sanmon with sad story, this gate is somewhat represents blessings as what mentioned to its official website, below is the summary.
Toyotomi Hideyoshi (regarded as second great unifier of Japan) built the gate from his donations, he prayed to Inari Okami and made a pledge that once his ill mother recovered, he will make donations which what happened for real. This story has been proven to be true when they discovered a text in sumi ink at the gate during its maintenance.
