This is Fushimi Inari's grandest festival, bringing worshippers from across Japan. During the Yoi-miya portion of the festival, many lanterns will be set alight through the shrine grounds and Mt. Inari, as part of the “Ritual of a Thousand Lanterns.” On both days of the festival, over 400 paper lanterns will be on display around the worship hall, and the Motomiya Odori dance will be performed.
