Nanten Inari Shrine

Nanten Inari Shrine is located in a pretty, wooded, narrow valley in the grounds of Nanzoin Temple, between the main temple buildings and the giant Nehanzo.

At first I was not sure if it was in fact an Inari Shrine, as there were no guardian fox statues. There were also no multiple toriis.

At the base there was a small pond with a Benzaiten statue, so I thought it could have been a Benten Shrine.

However, at the small honden at the top of the steps there were a small pair of kitsune figurines.
