Photographer Captures Japan’s Natural Beauty Through Her Muse, A Shiba Inu

Japan is one of the most traveled countries in the world and for good reason: among some of the unique things it’s known for are their world-famous cuisine (sushi!), cute manga comics, and a highly advanced electronics scene. But one thing that is perhaps lesser-known about Japan is its stunning natural beauty, particularly its flowers that bloom in Spring. Thankfully, photographer Masayo Ishizuki (aka @issyrider) is here to capture her country’s colorful scenery, which features as the backdrop in photoshoots of Hachi, her gorgeous Shiba Inu dog.

Much like the gorgeous florals that Hachi loves to frolic through, the Shiba Inu breed is also unique and symbolic of Japan.
