Original woodblock print, Published by Unsodo - Teruhide Kato (1936-2015) - The 1,000 Torii at Kyoto's Fushima Inari Shrine - Japan - Heisei period (1989-2019)
Fushimi Inari Shrine (伏見稲荷大社, Fushimi Inari Taisha) is an important Shinto shrine in southern Kyoto. It is famous for its thousands of vermilion torii gates, which straddle a network of trails behind its main buildings. The trails lead into the wooded forest of the sacred Mount Inari, which stands at 233 meters and belongs to the shrine grounds.
Fushimi Inari is the most important of several thousands of shrines dedicated to Inari, the Shinto god of rice. Foxes are thought to be Inari's messengers, resulting in many fox statues across the shrine grounds. Fushimi Inari Shrine has ancient origins, predating the capital's move to Kyoto in 794.
Teruhide Kato (1936-2015) had studied at Kyoto Art College. He was a famous
kimono fashion designer. When he was 50 years old, he decided
to follow his real passion, and became a traditional Kyoto woodblock artist. Success remained with the artist.
After a gallery exhibition in New York and a book publication of
his works titled "Kyoto Romance" he is as famous as a woodblock
artist as he used to be as a kimono designer
