In addition to the usual Japanese Ezo red fox, the village also has the rare species of silver foxes, blue foxes, platinum foxes, shadow foxes, and cross foxes. Over 100 of these 6 species of foxes roam freely around a large natural habitat at this zoo, which is the only zoo in the world dedicated only to foxes. The foxes can be observed up close, and visitors can also feed and hold them. Of special note is that in spring and early summer, even baby foxes can be held.
