Even if you haven’t heard of the term Shiba Inu before, you might have seen the movie Hachi. Richard Gere is the main character who plays a professor. Although the real main character would have to be the Shiba Inu in the movie. This dog is called Hachi, which is a famous dog in Japanese history. I’ve written about the movie before. You can read the article about Hachi here. The dog became a true example of loyalty to many generations around the world and still inspires people today. There is a statue of Hachi near Shibuya station. If you wish to visit it, you only need to follow the paw prints in the station. They will lead you to the statue which is always surrounded by people wanting to take a picture with it.

That the dog breed is still this populair today is not only because of that movie. It’s also because they’re so fluffy and adorable-looking! I mean, if you look at the picture above, how can you not find it cute? Owners of Shiba Inus around the world have Instagram accounts with thousands of followers. A favourite of mine is @marutaro who gives the world a daily dose of cuteness.

About the artist

After graduating from Saga Prefectural Arita ceramics University, Tetsuya Iseda started making ceramics in the shape of different animals. The colors, shapes and cuteness of Shiba Inus gave him inspiration for a whole line of Shiba Inu ceramics. He made everything from flower vases to pencil holders and memo holders (my personal favourites).
