In Japan, the fox is considered a sly trickster, and some even believe foxes have mystical powers. They are cute enough to put a spell on me, of that I am sure! See for yourself; take a virtual peek inside the cutest place on earth, Fox Village.
Fox Village is located near the town of Shiroishi, although it is a good 20-30 minute drive up into the mountains from Shiroishi Station. The scenic drive is well worth it, as the village is full of 100 or more animals.
When you first enter the village you go through a petting zoo type exhibit where you can pet and take photos with miniature horses, goats, bunnies and more. All of these animals are in cages or on leashes, but that’s not all Fox Village has to offer.
