Most patient pet owner takes pet turtle out for long walks on the streets of Tokyo

Meet the most patient pet owner in the world.  He is a Tokyo resident who regularly takes his pet turtle out for walks in the neighborhood.  The two faithful friends are often spotted side to side, slowly pacing along the streets and sidewalks of Tsukishima, a neighborhood known for its high concentrations of monjayki restaurants (in case you are wondering, monjayki is a crepe like dish).


He’ll often dress his African spurred tortoise in different cute outfits.


Sometimes they go the distance.  Often going from Tsukishima marked in red and Ginza marked in blue, these two neighborhoods are several blocks away.


He leads the way and his tortoise follows him closely, or as closely as tortoise can manage.


Talk about an awesome friendship!
