Ohayou gozaimasu




We are Japanese Temple Dogs. We have many other names that refer to us, such as… Fu Dogs, Foo Lions, and Temple lions. WeΒ  are the guardians of temples from the old days up until the present time. We resemble another guardian, the gargoyle.

Our job is to ward off evil spirits. We’ve been living at the nice lady’s house since 1979, and have been prominently displayed for all those years. We used to have orange tassels hanging from the swords in our mouths, but I think sometime along the way, the cats confiscated them.

We have traveled many miles over the years of living with the nice lady. We came to her while she was living in Japan, where we were created. Then, every time the nice lady moved to another country, state, city, we were carefully packed and shipped. We then were unpacked and resumed our important job, once more at a new house.

Thanks you nice lady, for the chance to protect you and your family! πŸ™‚


Thanks for visiting! Peace }i{

      • I always keep an eye out. The last pair I saw was at an estate sale, and they were priced far from my range. Gorgeous though. And such good feng shui! πŸ™‚

      • Hope you find some in the future. I was curious, so looked them up on the price list for people selling them. Well, some similar ones were anywhere from $25.00 to over $2,000,00. I’m sure these I have are not any way antiques, just something for tourists to buy, but they are heavy glass, and neat looking! πŸ™‚
