Introduction to Shusse Inari Shrine
Shusse Inari Shrine of America is the American branch of Shusse Inari Shrine, located in the city of Matsue in the Izumo region of Shimane Prefecture.
Shusse Inari Shrine has been respected by the feudal lords of Matsue, as well as the area’s local people, since the 12th century.
The main deity enshrined here is 宇迦之御魂神 (Uka-no-Mitama-no-Kami), who is the deity of productivity, business, food, and harvests, and whose workings give us life as human beings. It is through this kami’s divine virtue as the root of life that we can enjoy the blessings of nature.
Also enshrined here are 誉田別命 (Homudawake-no-Mikoto), to whom Samurai paid respect, as well as the deity of water and the deity of health. Shusse Inari Shrine is known for having the power to bring good luck, business and career success, recovery from illness, marriage and relationship happiness, good catches of fish, huge harvests and student success. Lately, Shusse Inari Shrine has also become popular for bringing good luck in the lottery.
Shusse Inari Shrine of America performs various prayer services such as for business success when you open a new restaurant or office, safe driving for a new car, safety and success of karate/judo/kendo dojos, Shichi-go-san (7-5-3 rites/blessing ceremony for children), weddings, etc. Feel free to ask us.
