Otchan is a pig farmer who is very different from other pig farmers. He has over 1,200 pigs and he doesn’t treat any of them like a mere swine to be sold or butchered. A photographer by the name Toshiteru Yamaji had spent a few years documenting Otchan’s bond with these cute animals. Seeing how he bonds with his animals is heartwarming and it’s just really nice to see someone doing that.
He spends hours just to bond with his pigs.
He even cuddles them and hand-feeds the piglets.
At times, he just likes to hang out with them.
Sometimes he serenades them with his guitar.
He’ll even read the newspaper with them.
He’s not just doing this as a job.
He’s the definition of a pig lover. Look at that adorable piglet!
It’s truly amazing how he can have this kind of connection with his pigs.
Especially there are hundreds of them.
Hopefully, there are more people like Otchan. He’s so awesome.
