This is "Kaiun Shou", a lucky bell.
You can ring the bell if you want to.
This is "Hougyu", a bronze statue of an ox.
In the old days, a bazar trading oxes and horses
used to be held near the Daisenji Temple.
It is said that if you wish on the ox patting it,
your wish will be realized. Just one wish!
