Guide to Japan Travel

The Akita Dog Fureai-Dokoro (“touching place”) in Senshū Park, Akita, has a rotating crew of dogs for visitors to meet. For the fourth in our series introducing members of the canine crew, we feature Hokuhō-maru, an Akita male. He is a friendly fellow who loves to greet people. When someone points a camera at him, he approaches and shows off his cute face.
