Kitsune Shrine
640px-PSOGL2 046

These are statues of Kitsune that can be found in Kyoto. Occasionally, a white fox resembling a Kitsune trots from between the statues and very quickly runs toward a tunnel. When it does, it continues to return to the statues and run again. On the shrine you can read 御賽銭 - "money offering"

If you touch the fox while running it will disappear. The fox appears to have no known links.
