Kawaii Fox (Kitsune) Biscuit

Kitsune is the Japanese way of calling a fox. Foxes (kitsune), regarded as the messengers, are often found in Inari shrines. One attribute is a key (for the rice granary) in their mouths.

As a Fushimi Inari souvenir, the one that is above the rest has to be the Inari cookies in the shape of a fox’s face. These Inari cookies are also known as fox’s face cookies, for obvious reasons. Even to this day, they bake every cookie by hand, and on busy days they have to bake one thousand cookies. The perfectly baked fox cookies smell delicious, and many people are lured in by them.

You won’t want to miss it!

xoxo, Joe
