The characters are usually traditional or fads at the time. From manga or anime characters to mythical creatures.

So, kitsune brings rich harvest, and it is a symbol of wealth. In Japanese myth, the gods themselves may appear as foxes. In other stories, foxes may appear as beautiful women to trick humans. Kitsune masks play a role in various festivals that celebrate these old myths.
