Sankoinari shrine in Inuyama is located on the way towards Inuyana castle. The shrine has a number of Torii gates lined up like the ones in Fushimiinari Shrine in Kyoto.
It is a Shinto shrine. Considered as a popular match making shrine and one can find many heart shaped votifs here.
Also is very popular amongst locals for taking traditional Japanese wedding photos.

We stopped at Haritsuna Shrine on the way up to the castle.

On the way down from the castle we stopped at the Inari shrine. Doing so allowed us to take the route down from the castle on the roughly cobbled steps and ramps. We took a detour from this walkway to visit the Sanko Inari Shrine and then rejoined the castle stairs to the bottom.

As with all Inari shrines, including our favorite Fushimi Inari Shrine near Kyoto, the tunnel of torii makes for excellent photographs. This tunnel created particularly interesting shadows on the paving stones. The fox statues are always excellent photo subjects. A board loaded with heart shaped ema stands near the torii and was worth a shot or two.

This shrine is small and you can visit it in under 30 minutes.

We founded this Shrine while we were visiting the Inuyama castle and we were not disappointed at all! We actually love all this red shrine that remembered us one of the most beautiful temple we saw in Japan, the Fushimi Inari Shrine. We really reccomend to visit also the shrine and the temple during your trip to Inuyama.

I liked this shrine more than many I have visited thanks to its bright colours and surroundings. Whilst it is very busy, it's still worth a walk and meander through. And since you'll be on your way to or from the castle, there should be no stopping you!

The love heart "prayer" cards were very sweet.

Sanko-Inari-jinja is just at the foothill to reach up to Inuyama Castle, and beside Haritsuna shrine. . It is the visible route so and almost all visitors to the Castle visit here before head to upwards. The word “Inari” that means a fox in Japanese so there are a few fox statures within the shrine. It is also famous for its many red torrii! The impressive shrine is where 3 deities are enshrined with red Torii, and whom provide blessings to worshippers.
Not a very big shrine but worth a visit should you decide to visit Inuyama Castle.

On the way to the Japanese treasure, Inuyama Castle, you will find a red shrine on your right.
It's a really impressive shrine where 3 deities are enshrined with red Torii. You may find some statues of foxes.
It is said that those 3 deities look after your (1)clothing, foods, residence (2)traffic safety (3)dance, music, life span and pairings.
The activity of "washing money" can be enjoyed.
Shrine seals are available at the shrine office. Two seals are JPY500 if you bring your own seal book.

Very small compared to the Fushimi-Inari Shrine in Kyoto, but beautiful and worth seeing, it wont take 30 minutes of your time I guess so don't miss it and you will love it.
