3-3.History of Anamori Inari Shrine
Before the World War 2, “Anamori Inari Shrine” sat inside today’s Haneda Airport.
It was forced to transfer after the war.
By the enthusiasm of the residents, it was enshrined in the place of now.
However, the shrine gates of Anamori Inari Shrine were not removed and remained for a long.
Because whenever Someone tried to break or move the torii,the strange incident happened.
Finally, in 1999,the shrine gate was transferred to the edge of Haneda Airport.
