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.

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 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 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 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 44/56 of Kuhouboutaki, and Vulpine Shrine #52 of Inariyama.

This Shrine is located on the northern end of the central block of fox Shrines in the eastern section of this temple at the southern slope of the mountain in the west of Japan. BINGO!

Word of caution: I am guessing here about the "垣" in "石垣大神", since I can only make out the left half of that Kanji on my pictures. There's dozens of other Kanji it could be, but this is the most common one that would form a proper word in combination with "石", and I have already seen Ishigaki Jinja during my time in Japan. Might still be something different though.

Vulpine Side Shrine 43/56 of Kuhouboutaki, and Vulpine Shrine #51 of Inariyama.

Once again, here is a Shrine with many Kanji that I cannot decipher due to their very stylized nature, attended by a pair of foxes.

Vulpine Side Shrine 42/56 of Kuhouboutaki, and Vulpine Shrine #50 of Inariyama.

A minimalistic monolithic Shrine attended by a pair of foxes, one of which had its broken tail mended by some kind soul.
