Fukushima Inari Shrine

Overview

Fukushima Inari Shrine, located in the heart of the city, is the biggest shrine in Fukushima City. Large crowds line up to pay homage during the annual ‘oshogatsu’ new year celebrations. This shrine is also famous for its rare variety of ‘mamori’ charms, including the ‘keibasho-mamori’ charm for good luck with horse racing, and the ‘momo-mamori’ for a good peach harvest.

The Fukushima Inari Shrine Festival is held in October over the 3-day long weekend (including the 2nd Monday). 23 large lantern-packed floats wind their way through the city center towards Inari Shrine.
