“Toyokawa Inari Tokyo Betsuin” contains characters of “Inari”.
In addition, there are many foxes.
So I thought it was “Inari shrine”.

However, “Toyokawa Inari Tokyo Betsuin” was a temple of 曹洞宗(Buddhism).
豊川ダ枳尼眞天 is enshrined.
Since 豊川ダ枳尼眞天 has rice and straddles white fox, it seems that the “Toyokawa Inari” spread as a common name.
