Foxed In The Head: Cycling To All Inari Shrines In Tokyo’s 23 Wards – #22 Adachi

#22. Adachi 

Cycling may be something that I love to do but I’m not really one who goes for a ride without some kind of aim whether it be to a restaurant, a sight or just my workplace. With that in mind, and desperate to get out on my new bike, I decided to cycle round ALL the Inari Shrines in Tokyo taking each of the 23 wards one at a time.

Inspired by recent interest in tiny shrines, this idea seemed like a good way of hunting them down in a slightly more orderly fashion. This really is not so much about the actual Inari Shrines but just getting out on my bike and having a means to an end. Please note that there are many more Inari Shrines (as well as other shrines) than what’s listed below but these were all the ones registered on Google Maps. The times in brackets next to the name of the shrines note the (approximate) time of day I was at each place.

Fox Rating: 4/10

Notes: The highest volume of Inari Shrines for a single ward. I was actually looking forward to cycling round this area and did enjoy it but was ultimately a little disappointed by the majority of the shrines. There were too many large open-spaced sites for my liking. The final couple of clusters either side of the Arakawa River were thankfully more interesting. Only one more ward to go! The end is in sight!

Nearby Sights: Momotaro Park, Tokyo Budokan, Demon Face Park, Motofuchi Park, Octopus Slide, Higashiayase Park, Snail Slide, Shobu Numa Park, Toneri Park.
