Vulpine Side Shrine 45/56 of Kuhouboutaki, and Vulpine Shrine #53 of Inariyama.

This is the first Shrine I've seen dedicated to a pair of great dragon gods. Nonetheless it is watched over by a pair of foxes.

However, regrettably the Torii are positioned so close to the Ookami stone that the first kanji(s) of all the names are cut off. One would need a periscope of sorts to properly look at them.

Vulpine Side Shrine 46/56 of Kuhouboutaki, and Vulpine Shrine #54 of Inariyama.

Another vulpine Shrine with badly worn inscriptions. Fortunately I can make out at least one of them.

Vulpine Side Shrine 47/56 of Kuhouboutaki, and Vulpine Shrine #55 of Inariyama.

This one is the final vulpine Shrine of the eastern segment of Kuhouboutaki. Once again, it sports the names of many, many deities, not all of which I can decipher.

It also features two little sacred pots, which are powerful symbols of good fortune, even if the representation in form of a two-dimensional symbol can easily be misinterpreted as a pile of poo.

Vulpine Side Shrine 48/56 of Kuhouboutaki, and Vulpine Shrine #56 of Inariyama.

The first shrine of the southern and last segment of Kuhouboutaki. By now my head is buzzing from all the foxes, and my camera is already rehearsing its death rattle.

This one is probably the cutest in terms of vulpine attendence thus far. Just a big stone with two little foxes.

Vulpine Side Shrine 49/56 of Kuhouboutaki, and Vulpine Shrine #57 of Inariyama.

One of the more proper little side Shrines, with moss-covered vulpine guardians watching faithfully over it.
