A little Shrine crammed into a few square meters of open space between three houses.

A number of foxes are hiding within. I think it might be eight. Most notably, there is a pair of dark foxes inside the likes of which I have not seen before.

Yet another little Inari Shrine in the backroads of Shinagawa-Ku.

No foxes within this time, but a pair and their kit stand watch outside.

I still don't get why they just won't port the 2013 remake to consoles, already.

A Side Shrine of Samezu Hachiman Jinja (鮫洲八幡神社 Shark Sandbar Hachiman Shrine), conveniently located right next to Samezu Station of the Keikyu Line.

A pair of metal fox cutouts decorate the crossbar above the altar. That'S not something I have seen before. Also unusually, a pair of rabbits appear to be hiding on the roof.

A Small Shrine hidden in a side street. You'd think its bright red colour would make it an easy find, but it's quite concealed by the surrounding high houses, so you likely won't see it until you're right next to it.

Two foxes bearing scroll and orb flank the Torii, and another two reside within the perpendicular Shrine.

Original Name: ? (Side Shrine of 品川寺)

A Side Shrine of one of the Toukai Nananfukujin. Note how the characters "品川" are read "Honsen" in this case, although the same characters are also used to spell "Shinagawa". Japanese truly is a tricky language.

At first I don't see any foxes here, but then I espy a pair of bounding foxies partially hidden by the offerings within, only their distinctive tails and hindquarters visible.
