Between 100 and 200 foxes roam through village at all times, and you can see and feed them all for 1,000 yen (about $8 U.S.). There are fox shrines, fox feeding platforms, foxes sleeping together by the dozens, and foxes showing their dominance by squealing in each other’s faces.

Here are two more videos from the village, just because.
