Hatsu-Uma- The First Horse Day -

This shrine is famous for the Thousand Torii Gates dedicated to the shrine by worshippers.
The shape of over 400-meters-gates is so spectacular that it must be worth a look.

The custom to visit the shrine on a certain day is derived from the episode: the Inari Okami (a god of wealth and business) descended from heaven to the top of the mountain, Inariyama Sangamine, on the first horse day of February in 711 (4th year of Wado period).
The dozens of white-fox-sculptures are also found in the shrine, because the messenger of Inari Okami is the fox.
The messenger is represented in the white color, since the messenger fox is invisible as well as Inari Okami.

On the first horse day, there is another custom to eat Inari-sushi and Hatakena mixed with mustard.
“Inari-sushi” is derived from the foxes’ favorite food, “Oagesan,” which one of the sushi’s ingredients is. “Hatakena mixed with mustard” is derived from “Hata no Irogu” who originally built Fushimi Inari shrine.
It is said that “Hatakena” became to eat since both “Hatakena” and “Hata no Irogu” has the same sound of “Hata.”
At Kashiwaya, based on the custom, we will serve Inari-sushi and Hatakena mixed with mustard in this season.
