Locals actually go there to pray. It's very small but very genuine and there is a lot of dog statues. I believe it to be "kitsune" not sure.. think it means fox. Not recommend for a pilgrim to this place but a definitive peak when passing by

We are glad we found this shrine as it is quite different to others we visited. Only locals were here and throughout our visit the chanting by priests added to a completely authentic experience. It is a Buddhist temple that venerates a Shinto deity, the fox god, or Inari. The Main Temple building is a complete amalgam of Buddhist and... More

Very close to Centurion Hotel Grand Akasaka, and was well worth visiting. When I went the sunlight coming through the lanterns was perfect. There are also a few vendors offering food and shopping opportunities.

Many statues and small shrines in the property. It is very near the Akasaka metro station, and it is located in the city of Toyokawa.

Red and Orange blooming trees drape over this long passage way to get to the Temple. The path way was flooded with people, shopping, eating and stopping us to take pictures of a small blonde haired blue eyed baby that was with us. I really felt like I got the experience of Urban Tokyo. It was so clean.

There is many statues and small shrines in the property, where you can light incenses and candles fir your pryers. It is very near the Akasaka metro station, and it is actually a kind of copy...

This shrine was much less busy than many others we visited. Perhaps that is because it is a bit smaller, but whatever the reason, I found it to be a peaceful and beautiful area in the middle of urban Tokyo. Besides the main temple and dragon fountain, the shrine is filled with little fox statues which make for some fun... More
