Shrines in Japan have fountains at which you are expected to purify yourself (by pouring water over your hands at a minimum). Some of them are pretty plain, but others — such as this one at Fushimi Inari — are sculpted in awesome ways. Inari, being associated with foxes, naturally gets a fox fountain.

    I just discovered Witch in a free library at the resort I was staying in recently. I was looking at your web site and noticed that you have an affinity for Japan. Interestingly, I was in Japan in 2011. One of the things I do is Asian bodywork in the form of shiatsu. I really enjoyed your pictures. I plan to find and read more of your books. They seem Divinely inspired! Thanks for your work!

      Thank you! I’ve been to Japan twice, and will be going back this summer; I’m very much looking forward to it.
