Hobbiton Movie Set: a Great Place to Enjoy the Pastoral Beauty

If you are die-hard fans of “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit”, you probably have heard and seen the hobbiton movie set, a small agricultural town in the Waikato region of New Zealand. Since filming, it was turned into a spectacular permanent attraction that’s complete with 44 unique Hobbit holes, a double arched bridge, and The Green Dragon Inn and Bar. The whole tour starts with a picturesque 1,250-acre sheep farm and pass through the 12-acre site that’s home to Hobbiton. You can even dine at the specially-recreated Green Dragon Bar on traditional Hobbit fare and craft beer. Sounds pretty amazing right? Even you are not that crazy about the movie, considering how gorgeous below photos look, it is still a great place to visit.

Zao Fox Village: Fox Village In Japan

This magical oasis of foxiness is called Zao Fox Village, and it’s located in Japan’s Miyagi prefecture where 100 animals and 6 different types of foxes romp and play together. For 100 yen (or about 85 US cents), visitors are provided with food, but because the foxes are not domesticated, they are cautioned against hand-feeding them or bringing small children.

Foxes are popular creatures in Japanese folktales and lore, and many of us may be interested in the history and culture behind these foxes. However, the main reason to visit Fox Village is that they are just so darn cute. What do you think about this village? It might be good place for visitor, but for foxes, I am kindly feeling sorry.
