Japanese Kitsune Mask

In Japanese, Kitsune () means fox. Foxes play a giant role in Japanese folklore - they are both loved and feared by the Japanese people. 

The Kitsune of Japan can be divided into two types. ‘Kami’ or Spirit Kitsune, which are considered benevolent beings who serve as messenger to Inari, the Shinto Fortune for rice. As rice was the main currency in Japan for much of it’s inception, it is sacred for the Japanese, and homage is paid to Inari in hopes of fertility and prosperity in the form of bountiful harvests. 

These messenger Kitsune are white and are called Myobu. Shrines devoted to Inari feature a red torii gates and two white foxes standing guard.
