The sheep is the messenger of the deity here.


quote
Tamagawa Daishi
..... you should see a Buddha’s head poking out above the trees. The Gyokushin Mitsuin temple, better known as Tamagawa Daishi, was built in 1925 by Shingon sect Buddhists.
Take off your shoes at the entrance, walk inside, and look to your left. You’ll notice a stairway in the corner leading down. Place ¥100 on the wooden tray, don the brown plastic slippers, and head down the steps.
Almost immediately you’ll find yourself in absolute darkness with only the cold stone walls as your guide. As you shuffle slowly downward in the dark, your mind should fill with fear and doubt. But have no fear, because 5 meters below the temple you’ll emerge to an awe-inspiring sight: a snaking corridor of 300 candlelit statues of Kannon, goddess of mercy.
The whole 100-meter experience represents a walk through the innards of the sect’s revered Vairocana Buddha.
