Inari Kitsune keychain
Another capsule ball toy. This is part of the Inari Kitsune series, 6 pieces in the set, 200 yen each. Inari is the name of a fox goddess, and you can find shrines to her all over Japan. The objects consist of two different colored torii gates (wood and concrete), a kitsune (fox), an Inari kitsune (fox with Inari's make-up pattern), and two masks (black and white fox).
I received the plain fox, which I do like (I love the expression on its face). I'm not sure if I would have preferred the Inari fox, or either of the masks, but I'm satisfied with just this one. It's a little over an inch tall.
And very well-made.
I love the paw prints on the bottom of its feet.
Here's looking at you, kid.
