Fox procession in Oji
Oji kitsune no gyoretsu
31 December 2016 – 1 January 2017

* “New Year’s Eve Foxfires at the Changing Tree in Oji”, “Hundred Views of Edo”.
The present Fox Procession (“kitsune no gyoretsu”) was started twenty-four years ago by the locals who wished to pass down the legend and traditions to the next generation.
