Dogs allowed out of their carrier on a pet-friendly bullet train on Saturday

Dogs given freedom to travel in the carriage out of their carriers on the bullet train

The picture shows a bunch of dogs in the train carriage, free of their carrier, as they enjoyed special treatment on Saturday on a pet-friendly bullet train from Tokyo to the resort town of Karuizawa near Nagano in central Japan. They normally have to travel in a carrier on the shinkansen (the proper name for the bullet train).
