The statues were dignified

There was a small Shinto shrine by the roadside. It was sandwiched by the parking lots. This sober shine is not known exactly when it was built. And I almost passed by it because it was undistinguished.

A small hall stood on the other side of the Torii. And two statues of foxes were sitting in front of the hall. They were shining in the sunlight while they turned their faces toward me. When I approached the hall, I felt as if I was welcomed by them.
