Product Description

This is an authentic Japanese Shinto Inari fox which is Kitsune.

 The god Inari is said to be connected with rice, tea, and sake. Given how important these three things are to Japanese culture, it comes as no surprise that over one-third of all Shinto shrines in Japan are dedicated to Inari. 

According to legends, the gods will often choose animals to act as their avatars or messengers. In the case of Inari, this animal is depicted as a white fox. Because of this, many Inari shrines will feature several small fox statues that serve as shrine guardians.

This Inari has Hoju, magical balls which means wish fulfillment and Makimono, buddhist sutra in the mouth. Some colors came off.

This will be great home decor.

It measures that W 12.5, D 6.5, H 25 cm (W 5, D 2.5, H 9.5 inches)
