As of March 2020, more and more companies across Japan are asking their employees to either change the time they commute to work or to cut out transport altogether and work from home due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.


Whilst people adapt to their new lives as teleworkers, children and pets across the nation are also having to adjust to seeing more of their favourite people.


We’ve met Ringo-kun before, he’s a Shiba Inu living in Mie Prefecture who enjoys sharing toys with his little human sister. More recently, Ringo-kun’s life has begun to change, as his owner (@ringoro119), has begun to work from home.

This makes teleworking a little more challenging, however, he can’t help but appreciate Ringo-kun’s happy expression that his owner is staying home.
