We have already talked about this village, but we found new photos and couldn't help but show them to you.

The author of these photos is 29-year-old Natasha Puente from Mexico. In January, she arrived in Tokyo for the TESOL certificate, which confirms the qualification of an English teacher. Once in another part of the world, the girl could not miss the chance to go to a fox farm — especially since this is her favorite animal, she even made herself several tattoos with foxes.
