Tofukuji is a Buddhist temple in Higashiyama-ku in Kyoto. Tofukuji takes its name from two temples n Nara,
Todaiji and Kofukuji. It is one of the so-called Kyoto Gozan or "five great Zen temples of Kyoto." Tofukuji was
founded in 1236 by the imperial chancellor, Kujo Michiie. He appointed the monk Enni as founding priest,
who had studied Rinzai Zen Buddhism in China under the monk Wuzhun Shifan. The temple was burned but
rebuilt in the 15th century according to original plans. There are a number of gardens in the various precincts
of Tofukuji. The current garden was designed by landscape architect Mirei Shigemori in the 1930s. The moss
garden, in particular, has been emblematic of the renewal of Japanese gardening-principles in the 20th
Century.The temple features a large number of Japanese maple trees, and is most crowded during the
autumn season when people flock to see the autumn foliage. It is a tradition to view the leaves from the
Tsutenkyo bridge.

Fushimi Inari Taisha

Fushimi Inari Taisha is the head shrine of the god Inari, located in Fushimi Ward in Kyoto, Japan. The shrine
sits on the base of a mountain also named Inari which is 233 metres above sea level, and includes trails up
the mountain
to many smaller shrines which span 4 kilometres and take approximately 2 hours to walk up. First and foremost,
Inari is the god of rice; however, merchants and manufacturers have traditionally worshiped Inari as the patron
of business. Each of the torii at Fushimi Inari Taisha has been donated by a Japanese business. This popular
shrine is said to have as many as 32,000 sub-shrines throughout Japan. Foxes, regarded as the messengers,
are often found in Inari shrines. One attribute is a key (for the rice granary) in their mouths. Unlike most Shinto
shrines, Fushimi Inari Taisha, in keeping with typical Inari shrines, has an open view of the main idol object
(a mirror).
