Shrinking areas of Japanese shrines

Kushida Jinja (Fukuoka, Japan) cement torii blocks from central shrine

The acreage under many of Japan’s Shinto shrines has decreased over the years. The torii gate in today’s photo welcomes you to Kushida Jinja, yet you have to walk a while to get from this gate to the modern shrine grounds these days. Does the shrine still own all of the land between its historic perimeter and its current location? I don’t know.
