7 Amazing Animal Stationmasters of Japan

We told you the story of Tama, the cat who became stationmaster at a train station in Japan (one, two, three, four, five times). Her success at bringing in new customers has spawned a series of non-human stationmasters, including dogs, monkeys (previously), goats, rabbits, a penguin, a tortoise, and even lobsters! Shown is Wasao, stationmaster at Ajigasawa.
Japan has at least two stationmaster dogs, with the latest being a shaggy off-white Akita named Wasao. Already somewhat of an animal celebrity in Japan for his “busa-kawa” (ugly-cute) characteristics, Wasao was the ideal choice to be Tourism Stationmaster of Ajigasawa station in far-northern Aomori prefecture. Get that? TOURISM Stationmaster… they aren’t big on subtlety up in Aomori.
