Minato City rules about having dogs

It is important to mind good manners and be sure to give consideration to people who are not comfortable being around animals.

  • Under the Minato City Ordinance, pet owners must clean up after their pets. Dog feces should be taken home. For urine, dog owners should dry and rinse over the spot properly. If you place a small amount of vinegar in the water, you can eliminate some of the odor. Please carry plastic bags and water with you when you walk your dog outside.
  • Under the Tokyo Metropolitan Ordinance, dog owners must keep dogs on a leash except in dog runs. It is dangerous to use a retractable leash without locking it. The leash lock is important to ensure the safety of pedestrians, cyclists, and pets. Make sure to use a short leash when you walk with your dog.
  • To prevent dogs from contracting rabies, all dog owners are required by law to register and have them vaccinated against rabies annually. Notify the Residents Support Section at Regional City Office to receive the license and vaccination tag and put them on your dog’s collar.

Prepare for disaster for your pets

When preparing for any potential disasters, please also consider your pets.

  • Prepare at least five days of dog food, water, medicine, a dish, a collar, a leash, and toilet sheets.
  • Make sure that your dog is vaccinated against rabies and other diseases.
  • Have your dog’s vaccination tag, license tag, identification card, microchip, and a picture with its owner.
  • Properly housetrain your dog and teach other manners, including going into a cage without reluctance and not being afraid of other people or animals.
