Photographer's Note

In Japan, a Fox is believed to be a servant of the God and treated as an sacred animal from a long time ago. You can see sometimes stone statues of fox in front of shinto shrines in Japan. This area (one ward of Tokyo downtwon area) conducts the "Fox disgise procession" every new year's eve. Adults and children of citizen, both of two, make-up by face painting or taking the masuk, join this unique precession.
This is the main actor, red Fox. I do not know the reason but the sacred Fox is believed to be red.
He was very fubby and took a lot of fool action quickly. So I intentionally used slow shutter(1/50) in order to emphsize his movement.
