Saijo Inari, founded more than 1,200 years ago, is one of Japan’s three top Inari shrines. A temple in reality, Saijo Inari includes an enormous torii (Grand Torii) and resembles a shrine while devoting itself to both gods and Buddha. Believed to grant wishes including for business prosperity and domestic safety, the temple is filled to capacity during the New Year holiday, making it to most popular temple in Okayama Prefecture. With the En no Massha shrine existing for the good graces of marriage and the adverse fortunes of divorce, visitors are encouraged to receive a heart-shaped matchmaking souvenir after worshipping and open the door to a wonderful relationship.
