A few days ago we posted a video of what we thought was a tanuki in Shimane Prefecture. One alert reader pointed out the error of our ways and correctly identified the creature as the much rarer anaguma (a badger).
Here is an image of a stuffed tanuki taken at the excellent Ibaraki Nature Museum in Moriya.
Apologies for any confusion caused.
