The house of God. Residing in this little house is Inari the God of fertility, rice, agriculture, foxes, industry and worldly success. Inari is a powerful God, the patron of blacksmiths and the protector of warriors - calling upon Inari can bring great success. There are more than 32,000 Shintõ shrines across Japan that house Inari (as a God Inari is omnipresent).
The kitsune (fox) is the sacred messenger of Inari and has the power of invisibility and human possession.
A kick-arse God, Inari beats the God of the desert (Yahweh) and his son Yeshua (Jesus) hands down. Unlike Yahweh Inari is not afraid of iron chariots and unable to be caught and crucified. He will answer the call of the devout Japanese and even supports modern industry (Inari is a patron kami to many corporations).
