Saijo Inari

Japan, 712 Takamatsu Inari, Kita Ward, Okayama City, Okayama Prefecture 701-1331

Saijo Inari in Okayama Prefecture is one of the three major Inari shrines in Japan, along with Fushimi Inari in Kyoto and Toyokawa Inari in Aichi. The official name is Mogami Inariyama Myokyoji, and it is a valuable sacred place where a syncretism of Shinto and Buddhism is allowed. As proof of this, even though it is a temple, there is a torii gate that you would see at a shrine. One of the prefecture's best worship spots, visited to pray for family safety, business prosperity, and good luck. It is famous for being dedicated to the gods of both marriage and marriage, which is rare even in Japan. If you experience “Ryoen Mairi” (held on the 7th of every month), you might meet a new good match!
