Its original name is Inari Taisha. It’s a headquarter of Inari jinjya-shrine, which has 30 thousand branches in Japan. It worships the god of harvest. Now it also does the god of prosperous business, peace to the household, traffic safety and so on.

We can see Sen-bon Torii there. “Sen” means “one thousand”. However, there are about ten thousand Toriis! Why does it has so many Toriis? Torii is an object which we go through. “Go through” means “overcome hardships and realize dreams” So, people established Torii and wished.
