Hip-hop group Asia Engineer held a show in Toyosu recently to promote the release of their new CD “Inu no uta – arigato” which features a song about MC Shuhei’s dog that passed away two years ago.
Model and actress Hinano Yoshikawa, 29, brought her dog to the event and spoke about appreciating their short lives. She said that she cried when she first heard the song, and couldn’t do her make-up. A reporter asked her about her love life, and Yoshikawa said: “There’s someone I like, but he doesn’t compare to my beautiful chihuahua Pahika.”
When Yoshikawa heard that Asia Engineer will contribute part of the proceeds from album sales to The Border Foundation – a non-profit organization which focuses on reducing the roughly 300,000 pets put down every year in Japan - she said: “I want to help out too. It’s unacceptable that people throw away their dogs.”© Japan Today
