※This is blog of this association student internship having you carry out tourist attractions investigation.

When it walks town of Kanda, it is Inari to stand out well.
Crowd zone with Inari that Kanda is more what than in 30 big things and small things alignment.
There is Shinto shrine with the history that is not known still more that does not appear in guidebook when back alley receives for one step either a lot.

At first it is this.

It is Matsuo Shrine of 2, Kandatacho.
It was this Shinto shrine, Shinto shrine where after checking, enshrined deity worshiped Inari God in "ukakoregokommei", and it seemed to be in additional post Corporation of Kanda Shinto shrine for the Meiji period.
Fox appears and disappears in relief here and there.
We like this atmosphere enshrined quietly by one of the depths of dark T-shaped road personally.

Next is this.

It is 18 Inari Shrine of 2, Kandatacho.
The foundation seemed to be called new silver Inari Shrine before the war in the early period of Edo era.
According to authenticating certificate, there is while fire prevention theft benevolence of the gods that is is high in this Shinto shrine, and the whole Tokyo becomes sea of flames at the time of Tokyo blitzkrieg when only Kandatacho avoided disappearance.
In addition, we seemed to be rebuilt by cooperation of local volunteer after the war as concrete main shrine by wooden your company.
It is Shinto shrine which loves, and is loved definitely by people of multi-town.

The last is this.

It is 2, Kandatsukasamachi truth virtue Inari Shrine.
This place faces very small alley.
Staple grains are fertile and are worshiped as akuekichimmamori, God of business prosperity, local guardian deity.

Originally Inari was God of agriculture according to the name of "Inari".
However, the Middle Ages later, we came to be worshiped as industry, all-around God including agriculture as it became commercial society.
It is not difficult for Inari Shinto shrine to have been believed in in town of Kanda where merchant supporting the Edo Shogunate in that, a lot of craftsmen gathered in imagination.
Site was cleaned neatly, and even small Inari whom I saw in town of Kanda was managed well.
In addition, local event is carried out led by these Inari and functions as the center of local community.
We feel that it is relation that I do not cut even if town of Kanda and Inari cut to know from these things.
