Maruyama Inari Shrine

Located on a hilltop adjacent to Oasahiko Shrine in Naruto, Tokushima, Maruyama Inari is a massha of that shrine.

To get to it you pass the German Bridge, so named as it was built by prisoners of war during the First World War. Most of the prisoners were German, though there were also Austrian and Hungarian prisoners at the nearby POW camp.

Fairly typical of Inari shrines, the path leading up to it is flanked by red banners...

... and of course a "tunnel" of vermillion torii....
