Toyokawa Inari Shrine

Aichi, Chubu

Toyokawa Inari is located in Toyokawa-cho, Aichi Prefecture, and was formerly named Toyokawakaku Myogon-ji. It was built in 1441. Together with the Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto and the Yutoku Inari Shrine in Saga, it is one of the leading Inari-jinja in Japan. Merchants hoping for prosperity have worshiped Inari as the god of commerce from early times. While it is a shrine, it is in fact sacred to both the Shinto and the Buddhism. On New Years Day, a great number of people visit this shrine to wish for good fortune in the New Year.’
