Kitsune in Japanese means “fox”, and in Japanese mythology belongs to the category of Youkai: demons, intended as spirits, souls that have reached a high state of knowledge and enlightenment such as to transcend the simple material world and reach the spiritual dimension.

Usually, a Kitsune appears under the appearance of a beautiful woman.

It is usually associated with Inari, the Kami of fertility, rice, foxes, and success.
Inari foxes always have a pure white coat.
