Myogonji Temple (Toyokawa Inari Shrine)
A Zen temple and a Shinto shrine (dedicated to Inari, the Shinto god of harvests) co-exist on this site. This scenario was common until the Meiji restoration, when temples and shrines were officially separated. In the compound is a small shrine in honor of a famous Edo Period administrator, Tadasuke Ohoka. Two fox statues flank the main temple, which is protected by many small Inari shrines. Admission: Free
This is one of my most favorite temple/shrine in Tokyo. It is breathtakingly beautiful and the story behind the creation is equally enchanting!!! A little pocket of serenity tucked away in a bustling city.
