Looking from the side, you'll see that the marshmallows are shaped to mimic the snout of a shiba inu and a cute cat. So what's inside? A creamy blend of chocolate and sweet red bean paste (anko), living up to the "Japanese style" of the treat's name.

The Japanese Tradition of Rice Harvest Season Continues With Giant Animal Sculptures Made Of Straw

Autumn is the rice harvest season in Japan. Every year, farmers make sure that the leftover rice straw, known as "wara", does not go to waste. Japanese artist, Niigata, has found a very creative way of using these leftover rice husks by hosting an annual event called "Wara Art Festival". Ever since 2008, the straw has been used as a material to make giant sculptures exhibited at Uwasekigata Park. All of the monuments are handcrafted out of wooden rods that serve as the spine of the sculptures and dried straw molded on the frame. Each handicraft takes about a week to be completed.

History of The Day: Rare Photo of 'The World's Most Loyal Dog' Emerge
  • -

A rare photo of Hachiko, the Japanese Akita dog know as the "World's Most Loyal Dog," has emerged 80 years after his death.

The story of Hachiko and his owner Uneo dates back to 1920's Tokyo, where it is said Hachiko would wait every day at the train station for Uneo to arrive back home from work.

This happened every day, until 1925 when Uneo unexpectedly died while at work.

Hachiko couldn't understand that his owner had died, so he stood watch at the train station for 10 years until his death in 1935.

Most photos of Hachiko (like the one above) only show him standing alone, but the new photo shows his surroundings.

The photo shows the dog blending in naturally at the station, and is totally different from other memorial and closeup photos.

When Hachiko is pictured alone, the environment around the dog is unclear. Almost all shots of the dog with people were taken as memorial photos.

The photo found recently was taken around 1934 by the late Isamu Yamamoto, a former bank employee who lived in the Sarugakucho district in Shibuya Ward, Tokyo. That year, the first statue of the dog was erected in front of the station and Hachiko attracted public attention as a faithful dog.

Hachiko is a true icon, receiving tributes and statues across Japan.

Good boy, Hachiko. Good boy.
