Inari Shrines are Shinto shrines worshipping for good harvest for farming products, particularly rice, Japan’s staple food. As Japan became a more industrialized nation, many merchants came here to wish for the success of their business. Nowadays people come here to wish for everything from passing exams, the easy delivery of babies, the success of losing weight and the world peace. It was originally established by Hata Family in 711, who originally came from Korean peninsula.
