Located near the center of the old town in Kanazawa, Utasu Shrine seems ordinary at first glance. Yet a closer inspection reveals some unexpected residents lurking about.

After strolling around the old town, this shrine is a peaceful retreat. Except for the 2 ninjas! I think this shrine gets crowded during special events like new year's, not today
