Starting in May, the Akita Inu News has worked on a new project titled “Proud Akita Dogs.” Here are some charming photos of Akita dogs we received from their owners.

Botan (one-year-old female)

“I took this photo during our regular evening walk. It was such a beautiful sunset, making us feel almost nostalgic. Botan looked so serious and funny having a flower petal stuck on her nose. I ended up taking more pictures of her than the sunset.” ― (Tatsuya Wada, Yamagata City, Gifu Prefecture)

Reo (left, six-year-old male) Raiya (center, four-year-old female) Haruto (four-year-old male)

“We visited Seishi Park to see the cherry blossoms in full bloom. I’m happy I got this shot of Mt. Chokai, cherry blossoms, and my three Akita dogs. The trio loves their outings.” ― (Kaoru Todo, Akita City)

Where Dogs Connect Akita and the World

Akita Inu (dogs), with their fluffy coat, round eyes, and an adorable tail that curls up, are now famous worldwide. Akita dogs have a strong body and are best known for their loyal personality. The number of Akita dogs raised overseas continues to increase. In Akita Prefecture, the Akita dog's birthplace, there is an active movement to utilize them for tourism promotion. Akita Sakigake Shimpo, entitled "Akitainu News," will circulate various domestic and international information about Akita dogs. The goal is to connect the world and Akita through Akita dogs.
