Almost families who hope to live with Akita dog discuss about choice the male or female and color with pleasure when they buy a puppy of Akita dog. So we'd like to mention about Akita dog's color in this time.

The standard color of Akita dogs are red, Japanese say "tora" (mixed black and white with stripe) and white. The red is just loyal dog Hachiko's color. He had thin red color. On the contrary, We say "Yakeaka" to the deep red. The best red color is middle red color, not too thin and not too deep. If it is too thin, it gives the impression as thin presence. And if it is too deep, it gives the impression as long-winded.

On another occasion, An Akita dog of Tora with an owner appeared at waiting space of the local air port to depart from Japan. It was only a few people who was express an interested in the Tora beyond comparison red Akita dog.
