More from Motonosumi Inari Shrine



Once one reaches the top of the torii gate path there is a big torii gate with a money collection box between two foxes (with a heart on the front of it).
I'd guess that it's about 6 meters from the ground to the money box and if one can toss a coin in the box your dreams will come true.



A shot from the backside of the torii gate. The little black dot above the telephone pole is an incoming coin.



Many try, few succeed. From my observation there seemed to be a lot more women trying to get a coin in the box than men.



All the best,
Mike
