The fifth of many vulpine Side Shrines of Magatarou Inaka Jinja, and yet another Shrine of the Line.

Many little foxies of sizes on through five stand watch over this one. At first, I count 22, but then I notice the tip of the ears of another foxie peeking through the viewport, making me wonder just how many more might be hidden inside.

This one features the unexpected and unusual live feline guardian, watching carefully from atop the Shrine's roof, in addition to a pair of foxies.

The seventh of many vulpine Side Shrines of Magatarou Inaka Jinja, and yet another Shrine of the Line.

This one is actually a bit preposed inrelation to the other Shrines of the Line, but going from left to right, it is still clearly a part of them with its two little foxies.

The eight of many vulpine Side Shrines of Magatarou Inaka Jinja, and yet another Shrine of the Line.

I think  it was at this point that I realized I might run out of time and/or camera battery if I took too many pictures of all of the many tiny Shrines around  here, so I kind of started to hurry and only took multiple pictures of the remaining foxy Side Shrines if I really felt they warranted it.

Anyway, there's only one little lonely fox at this particular Shrine, but hey,  a fox is still a fox.

The ninth of many vulpine Side Shrines of Magatarou Inaka Jinja, and also the final Shrine of the Line.

This one is one of those Shrines that clearly services too many gods, and while most of the names make sense, I really don't know what to make of 走賀大明神 ("Hashiga Oomyoujin" = Running Joy Great Gracious Deity).

The tenth of many vulpine Side Shrines of Magatarou Inaka Jinja.

Following the Shrine of Too Many Names is the Shrine of Too Long a Name. This one is also the first Side Shrine standing outside of the initial line, with two foxes of respectable size standing next to the altar.
