Inari Fox

1 Comment

Hi Everyone!

Isn’t this little guy cute? He’s called an Inari Fox.
They come from Japan and have they are so cute!

Look at those big eyes. You just want to hug this little creature.
These little guys don’t have to be pampered to much like other foxes.

The fox (known as “Kitsune”, pronounced as keh-tsu-ne) is part of the culture and the Inari-fox is the epitome of good foxes, all bad foxes are scared of it.
Inari is a god known to protect rice cultivation and is worshiped by merchants and tradesmen, Inari, according to Shinto beliefs, is the son of the storm god, Susanoo.
The foxes are the messengers of Inari and at Inari Shrines, outside are orange shrines torii gates and red inari shrines. So, it’s important to know that the fox is not a god but a messenger of Inari.

But it’s important to note that in Shinto belief, foxes are either malevolent or benevolent.  And there are youkai foxes that are evil and are kitsune fox demons.  There is some belief that there are foxes that are demon foxes, foxes that try to entice people to do bad things.

Retired in 2015, lived in Chicago, IL all my life. Love blogging and knitting. I'm sure people think my blogs are - hmm - "bonkers". I've read there are eight (8) type of writers. Closet writer, eternal writer, hestiant writer, innovative writer, inspired writer, literate writer, logical writer, and last but not least savvy writer. Still trying to figure out what I am. I like to use clip art or photos in my blog. Try to relate the clip art and/or photos to what I am writing. Eight (8) writers information found on greatstorybook.com Thank you for stopping by!
