A quiet little shrine sitting at one side of the park. It is directly linked to Hanazono Inari Shrine at its side. Both of them can be visited together in a single go.

I like this shrine in particular because of the kitsune foxes with their votive bibs. Be sure to see the other shrines in Ueno park too!

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
