Temples Shrines Historical Site Shinto Buddhism Temples & Shrines Tokyo Asakusa

You won't find a temple as uniquely decorated as the Toyokawa Inari Betsuin Temple!

Despite being a Buddhist temple, the Toyokawa Inari Betsuin Temple is unique in that it worships a Shinto deity, Inari. Since Inari is associated with foxes, the temple is adorned with thousands of fox statues and bright red banners. Despite being in the middle of the popular Asakusa district, the impactful imagery will make you feel like you've been whisked away to Kyoto.
