Meet Hachi—the handsome Shiba Inu who loves nothing more than frolicking in lush flower fields. His human is Japanese photographer Masayo Ishizuki (aka Issy Rider), who captures his adorable moments during their visits to Hitachi Seaside Park in Hitachinaka, Ibaraki, Japan. The area is famous for its spectacular displays of seasonal flowers, making it one of Japan’s most beautiful locations.
The Shiba Inu breed is native to Japan. While they can be shy towards strangers, these dogs are incredibly loyal to their owners, making them the most popular canine companions in the country. They’re also known for being boisterous, but lucky for Hachi, he can expend his energy by prancing through the Hitachi Seaside Park’s vast fields of colorful flowers, which often include blue nemophila and yellow sunflowers. Ishizuki shares photographs from her days out with Hachi on Instagram, where the free and easy pup is seen to always have a happy expression on his face.
