Mizu Inari Jinja Shrine
Mizu Inari Jinja (水稲荷神社) is a Shinto shrine located in the Waseda district of Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo.
It was founded in 941 according to legend. It used to be located where it is now part of the campus of Waseda University until 1963 but was relocated here in that year, so what's present in the precincts are relatively new.
It's a 3-min walk from Toden Arakawa Line Omokagebashi Station, or a 10-min walk from Tokyo Metro Tozai Line Waseda Station.
The main building, where the deities are enshrined and people offer prayers, is built with concrete.
Kaguraden is where traditional music is offered.
Small shrines are situated in the mounds situated behind the main building.
Kansen'en Garden (甘泉園公園), a rather small Japanese stroll garden next to Mizu Inari Shrine, was founded in 1774 as part of the suburban residence of a close relative of Tokugawa Shogun family.
It is now a public park free of charge.
In late fall, Kansen'en Garden will be illuminated at night to enjoy autumn foliage.
