Description

Your guide Kitsune In Japanese folklore, Kitsune are shape-shifters with magical powers. They are a form of yokai, supernatural beings who are neither good nor evil as such. During the tour, Kitsune takes on the role of a signpost or guide and accompanies visitors through the thematic areas of the museum. At interactive stations, especially the youngest visitors are invited to join in. During the tour, Kitsune becomes wiser and wiser, and grows additional tails until it finally reaches its final form as a nine-tailed fox. Peter Janssen Collection What began with a find at a flea market in Berlin, has now grown into a collection of more than 4,000 objects that is unique worldwide in terms of variets and scope.
