At shrines in Japan, you can usually see a pair of guardian dogs (lion dogs, actually). However, at Inari shrines, you can see guardian foxes. This picture is a preview of a shrine near where I live.
This is the fox on the left side. There’s another on the right.

Very Nice! Would love to see more about the shrine. Is this coming in a future post?
Yes, I’m planning to soon. Maybe tonight if I have time.
