Published on 06.29.2016 Kaizu city of the Gifu prefecture, right in the middle of Japan, is home to one of the "Three Great Inari Shrines," Ochobo Inari. Inari shrines are dedicated to the god Inari, who is one of the principle gods of Shinto, indigenous religion of Japan. Inari is a god that is said to have connections with financial success, so those with matters of money on their minds often visit shrines of Inari, to pray for the god's favor.

Ochobo Inari Shrine, known as "Ochobosan" to locals in the Gifu prefecture, has a unique flavor that cannot be found at any other shrine in Japan. Its 700-meter-long "sando," or visiting path, has over 100 stores selling local food and goods。Ochobosan is famous for its "kushi katsu," or deep-friend battered meat on a skewer.

It is said that over 20,000,000 people come to pray at Ochobosan every year. Despite being a place of worship, Ochobosan's grounds are actually quite a lively place, with its multitude of shops that attract a wide variety of customers. At the end of each month, there is a festival where these shops are open all night long. During this time, Ochobosan becomes packed with people.

Ochobosan is truly unique among Shinto shrines. One could easily spend a whole day wandering around the grounds, enjoying its rare local delicacies and retro atmosphere. Be sure to check it out around New years an authentic Shinto experience!
