Taue-sai Rice planting Festival

Fushimi-Inari Taisha Shrine, well-known as having thousands of red Shinto gates, enshrines the God for rice harvest. This is an annual event for a rich harvest of rice this year. Women in the Heian costume dedicate the dance to God (13:00~) and plant the rice seedling in the traditional music of Japanese flute and harp (14:00~).

If you’d like to hike through this shrine, GTK would like to recommend to try the east course of Kyoto Circuit Trail.
