Maru the dog -- not to be confused with this Maru…

-- is a 5-year-old Shibu Inu from Japan, and an Instagram celebrity. Maru, like most adventurous spirits, documents his travels and life in pictures. Instead of just hanging around where he lives, he actually gets up and travels to different parts of his country. He really loves nature and just adores having his photo taken in fields of flowers and grass. He’s hung out in Tokyo, snapped photos with ninjas and Geisha, been to Japanese castles and has even romanced us with a gorgeous photo surrounded by cherry blossoms!

Maru is totally living the life! Just check out a few of his gorgeous travel photos!
