※I may take the break of the Akita Inu at any time

You see genuine Akita Inu and are surprised at size of the Akita Inu, and please be healed by the face pretty kindly.
The Akita Inu is faithful to an owner, but does not often take to you other than the owner and the person knowing it well.
I may seem to be salty treatment, but that is also "a figure of the Akita Inu".
Therefore there is much Akita Inu that it is hard to be touched other than the owner and the person knowing it well.
You want more customers to enjoy "a figure of the Akita Inu", and, also, please note that you do not perform so-called "contact" in consideration for a health side of the Akita Inu and the security of the customer in this museum.


※For prevention of new coronavirus infection spread, I have you refrain from the admission to the Akita Inu exhibition room, and it is said that it is only a visit to glass etsu shideno from an adjacent Akita Inu museum. I would like understanding and cooperation.
