|Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha. いなり、こんこん、恋いろは。
Inari, Konkon , Koi Iroha. いなり、こんこん、恋いろは。 was a 10 episodes TV anime series aired between January and March 2014.
The main characters are Inari いなり, Uka-sama うか様, Kon コン, Kyouko 京子, Chika ちか, and Akemi 朱美.
I have not planned to do location hunt on this anime series. I just have a couple of hours before leaving for the airport, and decided to come to this tourist site to kill the time. Hence I have no screen print on hand to compare the actual scene with the anime scene.
