Dzao Kitsune Mura is a unique place in the northern region of Honshu Island, in the mountains of Miyagi Prefecture. More than a hundred foxes of six different species live here on a vast territory with its own sanctuary. Despite the fact that the animals are semi-wild, they are not afraid of people, because tourists often come here. You can not only look at the fluffy inhabitants of the village, but also touch them and even feed them.
In addition to the well-known red foxes, there are also silver, Arctic blue, platinum, Arctic dark and crossed foxes, representatives of which you can find in the village of Dzao.
Those to whom the idea of a fox hostel seems cruel to animals do not have to worry, because its territory is quite large, and foxes have enough space to move around safely. Also, foxes are checked for diseases once a year in addition to other preventive measures. During the entire existence of the fox village, there has not been a single case of infection.
In addition to foxes, the number of which exceeds a hundred, you can also pet little goats, hares and ponies!
The fox village of Dzao is located in Miyagi Prefecture, which is three hours from Tokyo by shinkansen (high-speed train), in addition, you will have to pay 3,500 yen to take a taxi to the village from the train station, so it's better to go there on weekends.
In essence, the fox village is a mini-zoo with a free range for animals. Visitors to the park can not only safely move around the territory, but also feed charming chanterelles, observing some precautions.
Despite the fact that the inhabitants of the park are practically tame and are not afraid of people at all, still do not forget that these are not pets and close contact with them is not safe. The rules of communication are as follows: you should not feed animals with your hands, approach sleeping animals and disturb them.
The fox village was opened to visitors in 1990. You can get into the magical red-brown kingdom for a modest 100 yen, which is less than $ 1.
The zoo has its own small sanctuary of the Japanese goddess Inari, the patroness of industry, worldly abundance, rice and foxes.
In Japanese mythology, Kitsune (Japanese name for foxes) — messengers and faithful companions of the goddess Inari.
