Haneda's Anamori Inari Shrine

A tunnel of vermillion gates 5 minutes from the airport

By Sandra Isaka    - 1 min read

Modeled after Kyoto's Fushimi Inari Taisha, the oldest Inari shrine, Anamori Inari Jinja is also dedicated to the deity of rice cultivation. Originally built in 1818 on the site of what is now Haneda Airport, it was moved just after WWII. The present location is a short walk from Anamoriinari Station on the Keikyu Airport Line, just one stop from the airport by local train. Although the shrine is small in size, it does contain many characteristic vermilion torii (gates) and fox statues. It is a nice stop for those unable to visit a torii 'tunnel' elsewhere.
