Toyokawa Inari Temple (Fox Temple)

Sitting in the centre of Toyokawa city, towards the southern east corners of Aichi Prefecture you’ll find Toyokawa Inari Temple, one of the prefecture’s most spiritually significant Buddhist temples, which often also goes by the more formal name of Enpukuzan Toyokawa-kaku, Myōgon-ji. What makes this temple so unique is not only its massive collection of inari fox idols, but also the fact that it’s actually both a Buddhist Temple of the Sodo sect, as well as a Shinto Shrine dedicated to the god of fertility, rice and agriculture, known as Inari Okami.
