Kitsune are commonly divided into two types: Zenko (good foxes) and Yako (wild foxes). Zenko are servants of Inari (Shinto god of rice) and help guard shrines and humans against the evil and mischievous Yako. Kitsune have superior intellect and gain the power to shapeshift after living for 100 years, so they often play the roles of tricksters and seducers in folklore. Kitsune’s Tail is a flaky pie that is topped with maple white chocolate and baked into the shape of an adorable fox cub’s tail.
