The Lovely Akita Dog

Recently had he opportunity to travel to Akita Prefecture in Northern Japan . We were engaged to take photos for social media promotion to foreign tourists coming to Japan. Akita has a lot to offer in terms of scenery, site-seeing, history and festivals. Part of our exploring tour was organised by Akita Inu Tourism aptly named for the Akita which is a large breed of dog.

In fact the Akita is the national dog of Japan and the Prefecture animal of Akita. They are widely known as family protectors and are viewed as symbols of good health, happiness, and long life. Up close they are a very attractive animal and easily to fall in love with. To see what they are like check out this article I wrote for Japan Travel website. (article about the Inu Dog).
