MOPII STORY WORLDWIDE
The Japanese fox (Kitsune) appears in the world's oldest novel, the 11th-century epic, The Tale of Genji, in which two human characters debate whether the figure by the tree is a woman or a shape-shifting fox. Similar figures can be found in Japanese folklore as Kitsune, a fox with supernatural abilities increasing with their age and intelligence, and which has the ability to transform into human form.
In ancient Japan, where the fox lived close to humans, it was closely associated with the Japanese Taoist god or spirit (Inari) and acted as its messenger. The role of the messenger reinforces its supernatural abilities. The more tails it has, the older, smarter, and more powerful it would be. Due to their potential power and influence, the Japanese sacrificed them as gods. But these Japanese foxes sometimes mislead travelers by lighting up ghost fires at night, sometimes they turn into cedar trees, sometimes they become guardian angels of samurai warriors, sometimes they are sealed as untrustworthy goblins, and sometimes they become the worshipped deities because of the people they save became an emperor ... Let's walk into the metaverse world of Mopii to unlock more stories of Japanese foxes.
