A wall in Shimabara, on the island of Kyushu, has become quite a tourist attraction. It’s not like the wall is extraordinary, but there are three square peepholes where three Shiba Inus peek from time to time.
These cute and extremely affectionate Shiba Inus made their debut on Twitter. Since then, they are now the neighborhood’s famous tourist attraction. They are unofficially being dubbed as the “Three Shibas of Shimabara,”
The square holes were initially built as an airflow supply to the garden, but the house owner noticed the dogs’ curiosity. He built about 18 more square holes to satisfy the dogs’ curiosity. The puppies were fascinated by the other side of the wall.
Every day these affectionate dogs are waiting to greet passersby. If they are not peeking on their peepholes, they will come once they are called.
There is a sign that says, “We’ll get upset stomachs, please don’t feed us.” Trying to win their hearts by feeding them snacks is a no-go. Don’t try to feed them so these adorable puppies won’t suffer, and everyone will be able to see them.
The three dogs might seem a strange attraction, but it is pretty normal in Japan. This country is pretty well known for its love and care for their dogs.
Although the original tweet was from 2016, it still gains a lot of attention up until now. A lot of tourists are adding Shimabara on their Japan itinerary. Foreign nationals who are also looking forward to meeting these cute dogs should also add Shimabara on their trip.
Recently, posts about these cute and amiable dogs resurfaced on social media sites, such as Facebook and Twitter. If you are visiting Japan anytime soon and you want to say hello to the adorable dogs, make sure to Shimabara on your itinerary.
