Back to the topic,Inazuma in Genshin Impact is based on Japan. Yae Miko, the priestess in Inazuma, is referred to as a miko, which is an alias for a Japanese shrine maiden. Additionally, Yae Miko's attire primarily features white and crimson, which is the traditional color scheme for most Japanese shrine maidens, characterized by white robes and crimson hakama.

In Japanese folklore, foxes are messengers of Inari deities, which is why they are often referred to as Inari foxes. This viewpoint is grounded in the belief that foxes drive away birds and rodents from rice fields to ensure a bountiful harvest. Some even believe that the Inari deity takes the form of a fox. In many shrines dedicated to Inari across Japan, numerous fox sculptures can be found, illustrating this belief.

The fox culture in Japan is quite unique, and they have classified foxes into different ranks and types. Among them, the esteemed Yae Miko possesses both wisdom and beauty. She is considered a celestial fox, possessing four tails and the ability to see through everything. Apart from the revered celestial foxes, she holds the highest status among foxes. Of course, we also know that the only deity of Inazuma is the Raiden Shogun, so naturally, as the chief priestess of the Grand Narukami Shrine, Yae Miko holds the highest position as a celestial fox.
