Although written with different characters now, the name Fushimi (which used to be its own “town”) originally comes from fusu + mizu, meaning “hidden water” or “underground water”. The location was known for good spring water. The water of Fushimi has particularly soft characteristics, making it an essential component to the particular type of sake brewed in Fushimi. This also explains why the area developed as a sake-brewing center in Kyoto. Today, Fushimi is the second greatest area of Japan in terms of sake production, and is where the sake company Gekkeikan was founded.

English Support

In order to accommodate the numerous foreign visitors that come to visit Fushimi Inari Taisha, the shrine has set up several useful support systems. 

Located near the major shrine buildings on the grounds are QR codes that can be read with a QR Code Reader application on smartphones, which take you directly to a page that explains the location in text or audio in four different languages: English, Japanese, Chinese, and Korean. 

For those who may not have a QR Code Reader, free WI-FI is available courtesy the local shopping street under the name of “Fushimi Inari Village” (伏見稲荷ヴィレッジ), so you can download one from your app store on the spot. 

In addition, there is an Information Center table set up just inside the shrine’s two-story gate with staff who can explain the shrine’s precincts in English.
