The 70kg (150pound), 19 year old African spurred tortoise is regularly spotted around the town of Tsukishima in Tokyo, being taken on his daily walk by his owner Hisao Mitani (62).
Cheering neighbours love to see him as do passers-by, many offering him his favourite fruit and vegetables, he is especially a fan of carrot and cabbage pieces.
Local myth says that tortoises can live for 10,000 years and his owner has picked up the nickname of ‘Kame Sennin’ (‘Immortal Tortoise Man’)
