Fox : Fushimi Inari by SheltieWolf Fox : Fushimi Inari by SheltieWolf
In this summer, I travelled Kyoto.
Kyoto is the old capital city in Japan. There are a lot of old shrines, temples and traditional buildings. One of the World Heritage. :)

Fushimi Inari is the main of one of the biggest Inari shrine groups in Japan.
This fox is one of guardians of the gate of Fushimi Inari shrine. He is holding a key in his mouth. ^^

There are fox statues in almost Inari shrines. Inari is a god of harvest. Foxes are servants of Inari. They are sitting at both side of the gate of shrine. The are guardians of sanctuary as komainu of a lot of Japanese Shinto shrine and lions of a lot of Asian Buddhist temples. :)

Inari is also the god of all foxes. According to a legend ive heard of, he has 13 fox children that each have one of the fox elements
