"A Shinto shrine located in Furueda Otsu, Kashima City. Counted as one of the three great Inari shrines alongside Kyoto's Fushimi Inari Taisha and Kasama Inari Shrine in Ibaraki, this Shinto shrine is dedicated primarily to Ukanomitama no okami, Omiyanome no okami, and Sarutahiko no okami. A guardian shrine of the life necessities of food, clothing, and shelter, the shrine is visited by some 3 million people annually. Due to its extravagantly adorned structure, the shrine is also known as the ""Nikko of West Japan"". The shrine's inner sanctuary stands beyond a series of crimson lacquered torii gates."

Away from the fast-paced cities of mainland Japan, Kyushu’s Saga prefecture offers quaint towns and cities known for their traditional crafts, particularly ceramics. Rich in kaolin (a type of clay), Saga became the homeland of Arita ware, a delicate, decorative porcelain that is now celebrated worldwide and can be discovered in the towns of Arita, Imari, and Karatsu.
