Visit: Miyagi Zao Fox Village, 11-3 Fukuoka Yatsumiya Kawarago, Shiroishi 989-0733 Miyagi Prefecture
The tour begins bright an early this morning as you are picked up from Oji Station in Kita, which is north Tokyo.
From here, you will begin the drive north to Zao. There is plenty of opportunities to stop for some beautiful photos of the countryside and to also just really appreciate the views of the mountains, villages, and much more. Though the trip typically about 3 hours, the endless photo opportunities can sometimes push this back a bit (dependent on you).
Once you arrive at the Fox Village and Forest you will stop and enjoy lunch before admiring the foxes. The village is a fox lovers paradise and a great escape from the city for a day.
There are several species of foxes that live and play in Zao. Though rules do need to be followed and taken seriously here, the entire environment is very calm and easy going.
Once you have taken the afternoon to soak in the sweet little foxes and you will begin your descent down the mountain. Should you decide you want to stop for more photos on the way down, this is no problem at all. Arriving back to Tokyo you will be returned to Oji Station to catch your train.

Take a guided day trip to a nestled up in the mountains, Furry Fox Village with over a hundred foxes that have been domesticated. The foxes here roam freely and although they are quite used to humans, it is important to remember that they are still wild animals and to approach them with caution. The drive from the city is about 3 hours and does not fall short when it comes to scenery. As you make your way up the mountain the journey gives you a glimpse into the outskirts of the city that should not be missed. Enjoy lunch once you arrive at the Fox Village and Forest.
