豚とパパ: The Peegs -N- Papa

“Buta to Otchan,” or “Pigs And Papa” is the title of a book by Toshiteru Yamaji. He spent several years taking these photos of a fellow named Otchan, who has 1,200 pigs at his farm in Marugame, a countryside city of Kagawa. Yamaji self-published the book and won the 13th Japan Self-Publishing Award Graphic Prize for it. You can find it on Amazon and Foil Tokyo. Way more photos here.

(Kinda reminds U of this story, no?)

A Return To Disapproval Island

P4170766Remember Disapproval Island? It’s an actual place in Japan.

Wikipedia: “Ōkunoshima (大久野島?) is a small island located in the Inland Sea of Japan in the city of Takehara, Hiroshima Prefecture. It is often called Usagi Jima (ウサギ島?, “Rabbit Island”) because of the numerous feral rabbits that roam the island; they are rather tame and will approach humans.”

No kidding!

Cuteporter Marilyn T.’s friend Jay M. recently visited the island, and look at these Photos of Disapproval!
