Fox village, deer park and exotic pet villages in Japan

For those who love animals, Japan is really an ideal place to stop when it owns a very unique pet village.

Fox village


Referring to the unique Japanese pets , definitely cannot ignore the fox village located in Miyagi prefecture in the Tohoku region. Here, you will see more than 100 foxes of all kinds such as silver, green and platinum fox playing freely with each other at close range. According to the Japanese conception , this animal is highly respected by the local people who believe they have supernatural powers. Many people also consider foxes as symbols of luck because they are the embodiment of Inari Okami, the god of fertility, prosperity and rice.

The fox village is divided into two parts, one side is to keep the fox in the cage for the purpose of ensuring their safety. The rest area is a place for them to freely move around, with bold foxes running to visitors waiting for food. In addition to visiting the fox village, you can also feed these foxes for about 5 USD / ticket. At that time, you will be instructed in detail how to feed the fox, so you do not need to worry too much for your safety. There are times when foxes can attack humans, however, that only happens when they are starving.

Cat Island


For a long time, the Japanese island of Tashirojima has become a paradise for cat lovers. What makes this place so special is that the island's population is only about 100 people, and the number of cats is more than that, so the island was named "cat island". The people of Tashirojima think that feeding cats brings wealth and good fortune.

There is also a legend that, in the old days, fishermen around Tashirojima island predicted the weather and the amount of fish caught by the shape of the cats. However, one day due to carelessness that a cat died, the fishermen here were very sad and they built a temple to worship that cat as a god.

The cats here are very friendly, so you can comfortably pet them, but on the island there is a law prohibiting dogs from coming to the island, so if you have a pet with you, be careful.

When you come here, you will easily find deer everywhere from the edge of the forest, next to the temples, or anywhere with food. Like the fox village, here you are also allowed to approach and feed the deer, however you must obey the rules from the park management and only let them eat the food exclusively for them sold at the park stalls. Usually, these giraffes are very benign, but when there is food they can fight and even some become aggressive during mating season, so you should pay a little attention. to avoid getting annoyed.
