Zao Fox Village
One hour drive from Sendai, Zao Fox Village is Japan’s largest fox-themed zoo. More than 100 foxes live free-range in a garden surrounded by nature, and you can watch foxes without a fence in between . In addition, there are a lot of small animals such as rabbits and goats. In recent years, as word-of-mouth spread, more and more foreign people have come to visit this unique attraction. In spring, a hug a baby fox experience is available, which is a world-exclusive to Zao Fox Village. All the foxes are checked for Echinococcus disease (a parasite common to foxes), so you can enjoy contacting with foxes safely.
