Kansai Scene Magazine


Our furry friends

Feature : They are loved doted on, cherished, lavished with gifts, dressed in fine clothes, fed gourmet food, idolised in the media, given elaborate funerals and occasionally tied up in barbaric conditions. They are Japan's pets. KS looks at Japan's obsession with its furry friends.
