Akita Colors...love the distinction between the American and Japanese Akitas.
Akita, dogs from Japan
Akita inu -- different color than a regular Akita. These guys are important in japanese culture and are used as a second set of eyes on children playing outside.
Shikoku Ken Inu Dog, Japanese Wolfdog, 四国犬. Can I have it?! So beautiful!!
Japan's faithful dog Hachiko. A devoted Shiba-Ken who waited for his master daily at Shibuya train station for 7 years. His master died at work and did not return home. A Bronze Statue of Hachiko was erected in his honor in front of the station.
Several people I know have a Japanese Akita and a Shiba Inu...many physical similarities.
Ancient costume for Komachi festival, Akita, Japan. Would work for a very tiny portable shelter.
