Pikachu dolls, and a large amount of make-up in her drawers. Kim Dao’s apartment is what you’d expect of a Japanese apartment. Small but very cozy.
Kim Dao, a popular fashion and make-up YouTube personality, has a growing a fan base of over three hundred thousand members. With such a large fan base Kim Dao keeps them entertained and engaged with make-up tutorials, reviews, and a travel video logs or simply, vlogs. One of her videos, “Japan Vlog: Zao Fox Village in JAPAN” is a popular video with over fifty thousand views. In this vlog, Kim Dao visits the Zao Fox Village located in Miyagi, Japan. The Fox Village is a location where visitors can watch foxes in an isolated area. Visitors are warned against petting foxes as they are prone to biting. The video documents groups of foxes, including an all-black and an all-white fox. Kim Dao then states that visitors can pay one hundred yen to feed the foxes from an elevated platform. The foxes wait in groups below the platform hoping to snag the food before their fellow foxes. In multiple instances, a fox will scale the wall of the elevated platform in an attempt to get the food from Kim Dao. Afterwards, an all-white fox urinates on Kim Dao’s left sock. With an entry fee of 1000 yen, Kim Dao states that visiting during the winter season provides a great visual contrast between the snow and the orange fur of the foxes. After highly recommending her viewers visit the Zao Fox Village, the video closes with end screen annotations. Kim Dao’s voice then asks where she should visit next.
