Fox Village In Japan Is Probably The Cutest Place On Earth

  


Souctine

This magical oasis of foxiness is called Zao Fox Village, and it’s located in Japan’s Miyagi prefecture. For 100 yen (or about 85 US cents), visitors are provided with food, but because the foxes are not domesticated, they are cautioned against hand-feeding them or bringing small children.

As is the case in the West, foxes in Japan are considered to be sly tricksters. However, some in Japan also believe them to have mystical powers or that hey are messengers of Inari Okami, the Shinto deity of fertility, prosperity and rice.
