Metro (h/t Stuff.co.nz) reports on a package tour that included the opportunity for patrons to bring their cuddly canines aboard with them on a trip from Tokyo’s Narita Airport to Kagoshima Prefecture.
Instead of stowing their precious pets for the trip or just leaving them at home, the dogs were allowed to ride in the seats with them, enjoying the comforts normally afforded the human species: free drinks, tiny seats, noisy neighbors and a cart that always manages to hit the elbow of anyone sitting on the aisle.
Thankfully, social media offered a glimpse of the flight portion of this tour.
As you might expect, something this profound would be popular with travelers. According to the report, this experience sold out in about an hour, filling the confines of the January 24 flight with 60 people and 30 dogs.
Now the flight was just part of what had to be a wagging, woofing, whirlwind tour. Metro explains that, for ¥150,000 ($1,324), guests not only received flight accommodations but hotel and ground transportation for a three-day canine holiday.
As you can plainly see, the dog days came a great deal earlier this year.
