Tokyo street style
I showed you examples of Tokyo Street Style, but that concerned fashionable people. Tokyo’s dogs though are not to be overlooked either! I saw some very stylish pets in Tokyo.
Dressed up dogs
Let me show you a few:
The first model -let’s call him Pierre- is a poodle dressed in denim. On his four little paws he wears indigo-blue Lee-sneakers, high tops. On his head sits a cute straw hat. Very French, monsieur Pierre, tres cool!
Our second model is also sporting a denim outfit:
This dog -I imagine him being named Sven- combines his Lee pants with a Norwegian wintersweater.
Maybe Sven is a fan of The Killing?;-) (remember the sweaters of the main character in that TV-series?)
These two whippets look all sporty in their sweats. On the right: a place that sells traditional Japanese attire for your dog.
Theme dressing for dogs
When I was in Tokyo, it was Halloween. Many dog-owners used that occasion to dress up their dogs in style.
These two women walked their 4 dogs together, with baby strollers as a fallback scenario for tired pooches. Two of them were Halloweeners;-).
On the left: a dog house with Halloween decoration. On the right: this young woman looked very stylish (her sneakers were awesome!) and so did her little pooch that was accessorized in Halloween-style. Cute!
Parking spot for your dog
Talking about dogs in Tokyo; how cute is this ‘bar’ with ‘eyes’ for tying up your dog while you buy yourself a coffee.
Who is that doggy in the window….
On the left (above) : a place for pets. A vet? A grooming salon? Hopefully not a pet store! (don’t remember).
The pet stores I saw made me so, so sad!
Cats in Tokyo
I cannot remember seeing any cats in Tokyo, apart from in pet shops. AND…AND…with the homeless of Tokyo.
This guy has four cats. I read about homeless people in Tokyo taking care of stray cats. This man apparently is one of them. More about homelessness in Tokyo in my next article.
The sight of the homeless man with his four cats left me with mixed feelings. Love and care between a human and his/her pet is always endearing. People living on the street is always sad. So are cats on leashes in cardboard boxes.
Let’s hope that this man and his cats improve the quality of each others lives. I choose to think so.
Like I said: more about the homeless in Tokyo in my next article.
