One day there was a tall handsome foreigner giving a talk before a big picture window. In the middle of that amazing speech people started laughing. “Hmm, I have not said anything funny that I know of. Is there something wrong with my clothing? Well, I will act like nothing happened and finish up.” It wasn’t till later that said foreigner heard that behind him a tanuki had went from right to left in front of the window. The morale of the story is never compete with a tanuki.
Tanukis are also seen as statues in Japanese restaurants.
