the first horse's day of February (Hatsuuma)
A torii is a symbolic Shinto shrine gate which marks the entrance to a sacred area. It literally means "a perch for birds," but its exact origin is unclear.
Inari(稲荷) is the god grain, agriculture, trade and manufacture. Followers of Inari have a custom of donating a wooden torii to Inari. It is said that the custom started from the Edo Period. As a result, 10,000 torii has lined up.
