What you can expect

Built in 1687, the Yutoku Inari Shrine is one of the three most famous shrines dedicated to Inari. Over three million people visit the shrine every year to pray for good business, good fortune for their families, a large catch, traffic safety and other matters. It consists of the Gohonden, the Okaguraden, the gate, and other magnificent buildings, which are lacquered and colored gorgeously; it is called Nikko Tosho-gu Shrine in Kyushu.

Learn proper etiquette for visiting and praying at the historic Yutoku Inari Shrine’s Okagura Hall. Discover the meaning behind each step, from purifying hand water to passing through the Torii gates, before finally praying in the magnificent Okagura Hall. Afterwards, offer up a sacred branch Tamagushi to the deities of the shrine. Also receive a commemorative original Yutoku Inari Goshuin-cho. The Goshuin-cho is a book on which visitors receive the sacred red seal of a shrine and have their visit recorded as a preservation of the memory of their worshipping there.

After learning the form for worship in this course, you can go on to use it in any shrine.
