Fox Face Sweets

The fox or kitsune is a symbol of stealth, craftiness and wisdom in Japan.

Visit an area such as Fushimi-Inari just outside of Kyoto, you will find the honoured fox standing guard with a bushel of rice or a key in its mouth at the temple and through out the temple grounds, often lovingly adored with a red bid.

These sweets are fox face shaped and filled with red bean paste-they look way to beautiful to eat
