Death comes to us all.. It’s hard for me to see fur baring animals go to waste or pass up the opportunity to keep another animal from getting hit trying to feed off of the roadkill ( which I’ve seen a few times before). Foxes to me are Wizards in Disguise. A magician of sorts. Cunning in a way that they try new things never done before- a bit in left field- like myself.
A walker between the worlds, wandering in light and the dark, neutral, observing, ever watchful.
These wizards make the most out of any barren wasteland and make it fruitful.
He carries a strong Earth Energy and are able to create their own magic. Very much a Cross-roads entity.
After gaining permission of course, there are a few things I can do with this fox to memorialize this fair critters end.
I will tan his hide using a at home tanning solution after fleshing him out. And believe me, fleshing is NOT for the weak. Fleshin’s a hard job.
It also looks like I can salvage the skull and a lot of his bones. That’s a job in itself.
The Spirit in me, honours and recognizes the Spirit in you, fellow earth walker 🙏

There’s literally thousands of these Torii Gates at the Fushimi Inari Shrine


5

Our second Shinto shrine was Fushimi-Inari-Taisha which is a temple to Inari the Shinto god of rice it has 10,001 orange gates called torii. In Shinto orange is the color of heaven. It takes 2-3 hours to walk the trail of gates. The fox is Inari’s messenger and you could write a message on a wooden card shaped like the fox and the Shinto monks will pray for you and burn your card. Of course I wrote a thesis on my card!! Lots of wishes! We also learned that upon entering a shrine you need to purify yourself and each entrance there is a fountain with a ladle. You wash your left hand first then the right and then you place water in your left to rinse your mouth, wash your left hand again and then wash the handle on the ladle. Upon entering the shrine you bow and then approach an area where you can introduce yourself to the gods bowing twice, clapping twice, ringing a massive bell that tell the gods to listen then you state your name and your prayer bow again and thank them for listening. 😊 we also had fortunes told by shaking a can and receiving a number along with a fortune. My fortune was ok where Jeff was bad so if you didn’t want the bad fortune you had to tie it on a string and it was no longer yours. No one knows how Shinto religion started or by who but over 40% of Japanese follow it. We also met a group of school children who wanted to interview us to practice English. This was so fun and the kids were the sweetest! Absolutely incredible speaking with them! 💕 #shinto #orange #orangeisthecolorofheaven #shintoshrine #shintoism #inari #foxmessenger #ilovejapan #japan #happy #blessings #wishescometrue #lucky #grateful

[ Inari Ōkami ]
"Inari Ōkami (稲荷大神, also Oinari) is the Japanese kami of foxes, of fertility, rice, tea and sake, of agriculture and industry, of general prosperity and worldly success, and one of the principal kami of Shinto. In earlier Japan, Inari was also the patron of swordsmiths and merchants."

Fushimi Inari shrine is famous for its torigate tunnels! While it was pretty crowded, we did manage to get a few shots by cropping the crowd 😜
