Jumbo Dog Greets the Public at Akita Station

Guide to Japan Travel

The public concourse at JR Akita Station in the capital city of Akita Prefecture features a jumbo Akita dog figure that looks like a stuffed animal but is actually filled with air. Visitors enjoy seeing it, and video clips of the dog gradually taking shape as it is inflated have drawn attention on social media.
