Spring time in Japan is not solely about sakura or cherry blossom. What matters the most is the enthusiasm of Japanese people to welcome the little flowers ornamenting the country once a year by hanging out with friends, families and last but not least, the dog(s)!
I spotted many lovely dogs in different cities in Japan and getting a permission to pet and immortalized them with my camera, thanks to my PiC, is a rewarding experience. Despite a roller coaster journey in the country and language barrier is the one to blame, it doesn’t take a genius to know that the owners give a lot of love and are so proud with their four-legged fellas.
Coincidentally, this post is correlated to Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge: Pets, that I stumbled upon not long ago.
The smell of onigiri and chicken karaage in front of a mini market is just hard to resist. On leash, buddy!
Strollers are not only for babies…
I’m a Spider-
If he could talk, he would say, “I want my mommy back.” The crowds makes him nervous. But he is not allowed to follow his master to the store.

“Stay away from my playground!” Okay, this dog is the most defensive and unapproachable one. He’s a good bodyguard and the owner is definitely proud of him.
Finally found a pure Japanese breed in Japan: Shiba Inu!

This 9-year-old fella is still very energetic at her age. And forever young, too.

“Why my master lifts me up in front of sakura and expect me to face her phone before me is beyond comprehension. I’d rather walk on the ground as usual.”
“This keeps me save and warm.”
Oh, oh, oh…. kawaii!! I just can’t get enough of them! But yeah, I have to catch my flight back to my hometown. Sayonara!
