OCTOBER 19, 2023
I was walking up the mountain path that belongs to Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto, Japan. It was mid-day and sunny, although shaded by the tori gates. This would have been just over 1/4 of the way up the mountain path where the tori gates pause. There were mini shrines to the right of the path and a stream down below the walkway to the left. While I was walking back to the path after viewing the mini shrines to the right, I became suddenly dizzy and disoriented. I felt a presence surround me and in my field of vision it seemed like I passed through a cold patch of fog (it was a perfectly clear day). The sensation lasted about 5 seconds and felt as if an earthbound spirit found me in my path to inspect me (right up in my face) and moved on (right to left). I’m curious if anyone else has experienced strange events at the shrines and temples in Japan.
