#AtoZChallenge: Kitsune

K

This is my first year participating in the A to Z Challenge. The list of participants can be found here. Thanks to Arlee Bird and the co-hosts for hosting this awesome challenge. Check out the site here.

I’m also participating in a mini-hop that got started on theme reveal day when a few of us realized we had similar themes.  It’s called Supernatural A to Z. Click below to check out the list of participants.  🙂

 

The creature of the day is the Kitsune. It is the Japanese word for fox. The Kitsune is believed to be able to take the form of a human. Part of the lore portrays as highly intelligent, having a long life, and magical powers. Three types of Kitsune are zenko, yako, and ninko. The zenko is known to be benevolent and tied to the god Inari. The yako are known to be mischievous or malicious. The ninko is a fox spirit.
