A little fox Shrine at the side of Higashida Kouen (東田公園 "East Field Park"). This one is slightly inaccessible, but I still manage to take some pictures of the two foxes standing watch over it.

Four days before finally leaving Japan, I am a dozen fox Shrines short of the psychologically important 600-mark. And so, I embark upon one lengthy, last stray around northern Kawasaki and southern Tokyo in order to complete the set. Should I succeed?

Here's the first fox Shrine I find on that final stray, located between three high buildings, and with quite a number of people to attend it. Two foxes stand guard outside, and another two little ones hide within.

This one is for one outside of Toyokawa Inari Tokyo Betsuin, but not far from it. In fact, it's more or less just across the road.

This one is special, however, since it's the only Inari Shrine that I've found which features cats instead of foxes. In fact, the ones watching over this Shrine are a special variety of soul-eating cats.

Yet another Side Shrine of Toyokawa Inari Tokyo Betsuin. This one, however, features frogs instead of foxes. Interestingly, the right stack of frogs is always wet.

well-applauded pokemon game dataminer and hacker brings lord helix to galar by porting over LGPE assets :
https://twitter.com/SciresM/status/1196341454437634050?s=19

good to see that restoring the national dex may not be a far-off goal to hackers
anything to give game freak a wake-up call i guess

though there are going to be hurdles to overcome, like the slew of moves that got cut - hidden power is gone, so what'll unown end up with?

The final Vulpine Side Shrine of Toyokawa Inari Tokyo Betsuin, and a fitting finale.

Many little and larger foxes take shelter inside this tiny Shrine. It's hard to make out exactly how many due to the gloomy January weather today, but it sure is a lot.

Vulpine Side Shrine 13/14 of Toyokawa Inari Tokyo Betsuin.

A fox Shrine right (or rather left) next to the main Temple of Toyokawa Inari Tokyo Betsuin. This one seems to be about getting financed or lending money.

Befittingly, there are a bunch of golden foxies sitting deep inside.

Vulpine Side Shrine 12/14 of Toyokawa Inari Tokyo Betsuin.

A minimalisitic Shrine with just an Ookami, and yet a quartet of foxes with a kit stand watch over it.

Vulpine Side Shrine 11/14 of Toyokawa Inari Tokyo Betsuin.

One Shrine further to the left is this tiny Shrine that yet shalters about 11 foxes. As far as I understand, 子授 refers to conception after a Shrine visit.
