As Vanessa Carlton once famously sang, “Making my way downtown, walking fast, faces pass, and I see a ginormous tortoise cruising by.”
OK, maybe those weren’t her exact words, but there is indeed a shelled reptile taking Tokyo by storm simply by strolling along the city’s streets.
Recently, a man was spotted patiently walking the magnificent beast through the neighborhood of Tsukishima and the busier, upscale Ginza area. According to RocketNews24, it’s an African spurred tortoise.
Cue the Vanessa Carlton again.
And look at the critter’s cute little outfit. Sunday’s finest, right?
