Little little tigers, lined up along the main temple at Tamon Temple.
These tigers (Tora in Japanese) are placed here in our stead, with our prayers, so that no harm will fall on us. Bishamonten, the Buddhist god that is enshrined at Tamon Temple, personified as a tiger. The reason there are so many tigers.
Can you see all the different expressions on their faces? All the tigers are handmade!
