Shot at Ichigaya Kamegaoka Hachiman-Gu shrine, a Shinto shrine in Ichigaya, Tokyo.
Next to the steep stairway, there is another Shinto shrine in the precinct. It is Chanoki Inari Jinja. The deities enshrined here are different from the deities which are enshrined in Ichigaya Kamegaoka Hachiman-Gu.
Because the Shintoism is a polytheistic religion, there are many deities. The deities enshrined in this shrine are Inari Okami and Ukemochi No Kami. They are identified. So I don't know why the two deities are enshrined together. Anyway, it is believed that they take charge of food, clothing and shelter.
A statue of a fox was placed in the small precinct. It was turning away while it clutched Cintamani in its teeth. It looked like it was watching someone coming.
