The statues wore a red apron

Next to the main hall of the shrine, another small shrine in which Inari Okami was enshrined was built. And two statues of fox wearing a red apron was placed in front of the hall. They turned their necks and watched whatever came.

The Inari Okami which was one of the deities in Shintoism was identified with fox historically. So, a fox was enshrined in the hall and two foxes were guarding in front of the hall. All characters were foxes here.
