Four Seasons Kitsune Fox Mug at Zazzle from MeredithDillman

The Japanese word for fox is kitsune and they are very common in Japanese folklore. The word kitsune is often translated to fox spirit which is a reflection of the wisdom they have gained throughout their lives and does not refer to a ghost-like creature. Kitsune are believed to possess superior intelligence, magical powers and a long life and are more similar to faeries from Western cultures.

The beautiful mug featuring artwork from Meredith Dillman features the four seasons with the kitsune dressed in a traditional Japanese style for each of the seasons.
