Akita Dogs in Ōdate: Hina Charms Hotel Guests

Guide to Japan Travel

Hina, a two-year-old Akita dog, is one of the canine greeters at the Royal Hotel Ōdate in the city of Ōdate, Akita Prefecture, along with a male dog, Eito. She charms guests with her cute expression. And when you photograph her, she looks straight at the camera. Spending some time with her is a good way to unwind.
