Chinese Zodiac Signs

I went to Shimogamo Shrine, one of the most famous shrines in Kyoto, for Hatsumoude.
It was a sunny day yesterday and I enjoyed the wonderful visiting!
There were some small statues in the court, around the main building,
Each visiter is allocated to one of them, according to his or her own Chinese Zodiac Sign.
Unlike European Zodiac Sign, they pass their dominant year to next Zodiac Sign at the end of year.
For example, sheep was dominant last year and ape is symbolizing this year.
If you have time, please check your Chinese Zodiac Sign!
