fushimi-inari-taisha shrine in Kyoto is known for “Senbon Torii/thousand Torii/千本鳥居”.
The Inari religious believers in the Kanto region were eager to built “fushimi-inari-taisha shrine in Kyoto also in Tokyo!”.
In cooperation with Kyoto fushimi-inari-taisha shrine, it was divided in 1929.
I think “Higashisen Inari shrine” means “East Fushimi Inari”.
