Usually, the boisterous statues are placed in the precincts of the Buddhist temples and the Shinto shrines. These statues are guarding the precincts from the evils. It might be difficult to do it if the guardians are doddered.

Apart from the common belief, a cute wooden statue of an owl was placed at the entrance of this main hall. It didn't seem to guard the main hall. It kept looking the other way.
