A big ornament was placed on the roof of a dwelling. It was a statue of Shisa, resembling a cross between a lion and a dog. Shisa is believed as a talisman in Okinawa. So the ornament was guarding this house.

It opened its mouth wide and many big fangs were seen. It could be impossible to last two seconds, anyone was bitten by it. On the other hand, it had cute eyes. The contrast between the furious fangs and the cute eyes were impressive.
