Welcome to Inuyama

Just beneath the castle are the picturesque Shintō shrines Haritsuna Jinja and Sankō-Inari Jinja, the latter with interesting statues of komainu (protective dogs) and a short pathway of red torii (gates).

Since 1635 townsfolk have celebrated the Inuyama Matsuri on the first weekend in April. The festival highlight is a parade of lantern-strewn floats.
