How to read





It gives clever, smart and sometimes shrewd impressions.

Is it good or bad??


Both! In Japan, a fox is sometimes a divine messenger and sometimes an evil spirit that deceives people.

For example, do you know Kurama in Naruto, the nine-tailed beast? Its origin is an ancient Japanese demon called “Kyubi no Kitsune”.

KYU = nine

BI = tail

NO = of


Japanese people in old times thought that the fox had the ability to transform into a human and tried to trick people.


That’s why we have an image that fox is a crafty animal.

On the contrary, a fox is treated as a divine messenger and enshrined all over Japan. You can see a fox statue like this at Japanese shrines. It’s said there are over 30,000 fox statues in Japan.

Either way, it’s believed that a fox is an animal with mysterious power!


The left part of the character pictures “animal” and the right part represents the sound “KO”, another way of reading the KITSUNE symbol.
