Subaru, a Star at the Akita Dog Preservation Society Headquarters

Guide to Japan Travel Lifestyle

Subaru is one of the star canines at the Akita Dog Preservation Society headquarters in Ōdate, Akita Prefecture. His sister Sakura was given as a present for adoption by Asashōryū, a former Yokozuna, or grand champion sumo wrestler. Since his debut in May he has been growing healthily. When he goes for a walk, he happily carries the bag containing his gear.
