The Pets of Japan

Heather Lighton's pictures of cute kids and hilarious pets from the world capital of kawaii.

Melbourne photographer Heather Lighton recently returned from the world capital of kawaii, and although we're sure she saw a lot of interesting things, she mostly chose to take pictures of cute kids and hilarious pets.

There's an argument that the west's obsession with Japan as a saccharine, novelty wonderland that exists only to fuel our green tea Kit Kat–flavored fantasies is patronizing and archaic. But come on. There's a picture here of someone taking a raccoon for a walk. We're only human, people.
