Is a good place to up closed with the Fox. This is a sanctuary for those Fox that got injured. The foxes are not caged, they are allowed to be wonder about.

Foxes are shy animals, so even if you encounter a wild one it can be difficult to take pictures or have a good look. In this little farm many foxes are walking around freely, with no fences between you and the foxes.

Greetings from Geoffrey Goh! The entrance of this fox farm is not glamorous and may even look old for some. We were greeted at the gate by a red fox just 30 cm away. We were a bit fearful at first and were hesitant to...More

Honestly, if you are not driving, it's not worth making a trip to this place. It's at least 90 minutes drive from the town of Kitami, and further if you come from Abashiri. It's only good if you are passing through the... More
