Sumiyoshi Inari Shrine

Sumiyoshi Inari Shrine

As well as the Mikka Ebisu Shrine, the grounds of Sumiyoshi Shrine in Hakata also contains an Inari Shrine.

It has a couple of small tunnels of vermilion torii, though much fewer than many Inari shrines.

The full name of the shrine is Arakuma / Shirahige Inari Shrine.

Behind the main hall of the shrine is a second Inari shrine called Nozoki Inari. It consists of a tunnel made out of a ile of rocks, and it is said that if you look into the tunnel and can see yourself reflected in the mirror at the rear then you will have your wish granted.
