Foxes In Straight Rows

foxe statues in straight rows

Many statues of fox were placed

Shot at Toyokawa Inari Betsuin, a Buddhist temple in Moto-Akasaka, Tokyo.

Because the fox was recognized as an avatar of the deity enshrined here, there were many statues of fox in the precinct. And some of them formed a line. They were holding a scroll between their teeth and faced in the same direction like soldiers. I thought as if I gave a command the right face.

It is believed that the message from the deity was written in the scroll. Although I wanted to read it, the scrolls were clutched with both feet.
