Fox Village In Japan Is Probably The Cutest Place On Earth

Apparently, Japan is covered in magical and irresistibly cute animal sanctuaries. We’ve heard about the bunny island and cat island, but there’s also a Fox Village, where six different types of foxes, including red foxes and the rare silver foxes, romp and play together in a battle for your attention (and probably for your food, too).

This magical oasis of cute foxes 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 into the Fox Island.

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 they are messengers of Inari Okami, the Shinto deity of fertility, prosperity, and rice. If you’re not convinced, you can check out these magical fox pictures! Scroll down to learn more about Fox Island and its fluffy mischevious inhabitants.
