In front of the wooden main hall, a wooden offertory box was placed. And I could see two worshipers praying in front of the hall on the other side of the box. They were just bowing their head.

The principal image is Dakini which derived a Hindu deity. And it is equated with Inari Okami which is known as a deity of business in Japan. As a general rule, Inari Okami is enshrined in Shinto shrines. Yet here is a Buddhist temple.
