Although this religious place is a Buddhist temple, it enshrined Dakini. It is identified with Inari Okami which is usually enshrined in Shinto shrines.
So there are many fox statues in the precinct. Because foxed are recognized as an avatar of Inari Okami, two statues of fox are placed in front of the main hall. The statue in this photo is one of them. It has a thick tail and it was cocked up as if the fox it keeps an eye out.
