... thing is that everywhere around this huge area, which basically includes the complete mount Inari, are small statues of foxes on both sides of the shrines. This is because Inari Ōkami is the Shinto kami (god) of rice, fertility, tea, sake and.. foxes. Those foxes, the kitsunes, are pure white and act as messanger of the god, so they are very present in this area. The primary shrine is on the top of the mountain and a torii-route of approximately 4km lead there, but we did ...

... We start the trek up the hill, I'm not sure when a hill becomes a mountain (maybe I should watch that fop Hugh Grant in the Englishman who went up a hill and came down a mountain) but this was a steep assent up a rough trail.

... put on and take off the kimono. A kimono is a traditional Japanese outfit that kind of looks like a toga. After that was done the instructor gave us bamboo swords and we practiced the 3 attacks. Yes in kendo there are only three places to hit your enemy. They are on the head, on the stomach, and on the hand. We whacked the instructor so many times if he had no armor on he may have passed out. He even taught us a kind of combo where we would hit him on the head like ...

... rich people, as the shrine is dedicated to do good business.

We decided to walk the 4.5 km long path to the top of the hill. The path is very nice through the forest and you can easily walk as it is not very steep. But walking in a brutal 34C temperature with high humidity is not a piece of cake. We were sweating and soon were soaked ...
