This is one of a few shrines I visited in Sakujii-koen in Tokyo's Nerima-ku.

 

In the early part of the eighteenth century people from what was then known as Tanaka-mura, the present Minami Tanaka, moved to the area where Miharadai Inari Jinja is located, and together with the original inhabitants of the area developed new rice paddies. These were called the Tanaka-mura kitahara shinden and the shrine  which accompanied the development the Tanaka Shinden Inari-sha. 

The oldest parts of the shrine, dating to the Taisho Period, 1912-1926, are the main torii and the stone lanterns. The main hall and prayer hall were rebuilt in 1959. Inside the latter there is a collection of 36 ema and votive tablets from the closing days of the Tokugawa Shogunate.

On the right facing the main hall there is a small lava hill behind a torii on which is engraved the name of Hikawa Jinja, and other smaller monuments bearing the names of Ontake Okami (御嶽大神), Komyo Reijin(明霊神), and Hitoyama Reijin (一山霊神). Facing the main hall, to its left is a small mound behind another torii. On it is engraved Fuji-san Sangen Jinja (富士山浅間神社).
