Japan started to celebrate Shiba Inu Festival on April 8. April is set to be the festival time since "four" and "eight" pronounced in Japanese sounds like "Shiba".

Shiba Inu is a native dog of Japan and has triangular head, curled tail, upright ears, and dense double coat.

This year's Shiba Inu Festival went extremely viral on social media because it will be the last one in heisei period, current era time of Japan that will come to an end by the end of this April.

The dog Festival is celebrated in several forms: special dog cafe for Shiba Inu, photo exhibition, comics exhibition, "I like Shiba Inu" themed bookstore.

And online celebration by posting beautiful pictures of the dog on social media.

Let's enjoy some adorable photos of Shiba Inu. (Photos: social media)

Flowers on my head.

I'm surrounded by blossoms.

I like your gift.

Be quick! It's hard to keep the posture.

I'm a baby in the trolly.

I just enjoy lying down and doing nothing at all/

Hands off my face! Hey you!

Wink! Fall in my charm?

Am I your sweet heart?

You are such a bad photographer!

A moment like this is to be remembered.



A big family.

A big family.

A big family.

So tired.
