Question: Where do Tanuki live in Japan?

Hokkaido, Kyushu, Honshu, Shikoku, Sado Island and Awaji Island are the main territories where they live as a wild animal. Usually they live in hilly forests which are thick and close to water. Nowadays, they are seen in both urban and rural areas.

Where can I find tanuki in Japan?

Where to see them: Tanuki live all over Japan, sometimes even in urban areas. There are even rare white Tanuki in Miyajima which you may see scuttling around. If you dont spot a real tanuki, you will most certainly notice their statues everywhere you go in Japan!
