A Japanese funeral director named Hisao Mitani owns an enormous pet tortoise named Bon-chan. Every evening, he takes the giant to walks in Monja Street of Chuo district in Tokyo, Japan, bringing joy to the passers-by. The massive tortoise was born on 1996.

Hisao has purchased Bon-chan from a pet shop in Tokyo, 25 years ago. He had never had children, so he bought Bon-chan to take the place of a child. He states that from the moment his wife laid her eyes on Bon-chan, he couldn’t leave the store without it. Mitani became Bon-chan’s owner during the O-Bon holidays. This is the time period when Japan pays respect to their ancestors.
