So Apparently There’s a Fox Sanctuary in Japan
In the mountains near Shiroishi, Japan you will find Zao Fox Village where nearly 100 foxes freely roam. Located in the Miyagi Prefecture, the fox village consists of a wide variety of structures, houses and objects (including statues and a Shinto shrine) for the foxes to climb, explore and rest.

To get to the fox village you must travel 20-30 minutes by car or taxi from Shiroishi Station. Admission is approximately 1000 Yen ($8.40 USD) for adults and 400 Yen ($3.35 USD) for children. In addition to the forested area there is also a petting zoo with other animals like miniature horses, goats and rabbits. You can also purchase food for the foxes at an additional cost.
