Akita Dogs in Ōdate: Eito Displays His Fluffy Tail

Guide to Japan Travel

Two-year-old Eito is one of the pair of Akita dogs that greet visitors to the Royal Hotel Ōdate in the city of Ōdate, Akita Prefecture. (The other is a female dog, Hina.) The two-year-old delights people with his big fluffy tail. But he gets startled if touched suddenly, so it’s a good idea to ask a human staffer before petting him.
