Excerpt from the book “The Lost Wolves Of Japan” by writer Brett L. Walker (2005): “In Japanese mythology, farmers worship wolves in temples, offering food to their teeth to pray for them to protect crops from wild pigs and deer. In folklore, Japanese people believe that talismans with images of wolves will protect them from disease and other unwholesome things; bring fertility, enrichment to farmland and children for couples ”.
In Japanese folklore, foxes represent affluence and complexity. That belief grows even more when people live closer to nature expressed in stories, feasts and languages. Fox also exudes an enchanting scent around people. Inari is a god of fox, embodies the fertility, rice, tea and sake, of agriculture and industry. Inari is also one of the main kami of Shintoism.
The mystical but peaceful image is shown in this beautiful picture through the meeting moment of a female student and Inari in a deserted ancient temple.
Fox is one of the most revered animals in Japanese tradition and folklore. They are often the protagonists of stories that tell great intelligence and supernatural abilities. According to Yōkai culture, foxes have the ability to transform into human form. In some folk cultures, that ability of foxes always brings more horrifying obsession than luck, because it often turns into extremely beautiful girls who fascinate and suck human air. But for Japan, like the loyal guardians, friends, lovers and wives.
