Main shrine of Fujimori Shrine

[Fujimori Shrine] in Fushimi is worshiped as the god of victory and horses.

The Fujimori Festival, held every year from May 1 to 5, is famous as the origin of the "Iris (Dragon Boat) Festival. The shrine is also known as a deity that protects horses, and many people involved in horse racing visit the shrine to pray.
