Let's give a round of appaws to Japan's new canine idol group


This group has more bark than bite

Well, people. It looks like we have a new dog-themed group in town and they're ready to create music with their barks. Going by the name of Mofu Mofu Dogs, these idols are actual Akita-Inu breed canines with human bodies. 

Obviously, the group's appearance is the result of an edit but it's interesting to see this idea come to fruition. The concept behind Mofu Mofu Dogs was made by Akita Inu Tourism as a way to get more folks to travel to Kamikoanimura, Kita Akita, Kosakamachi and Odate. For now, the video makes me want to adopt an Akita Inu than visit the four areas in Japan's northern Akita Prefecture; however, the canines could get folks check out their home region.

At the moment, I'm interested in seeing if Mofu Mofu Dogs' song "Waiting for 4U~We'll Make You Mofu Mofu" will remain as their only tune. I guess this will depend on what Akita Inu Tourism plans to do with their current promotional campaign.
