A new trend is currently catching people’s attention in Japan.

Called the “Hamuketsu,” this new craze features none other than the lovely butts of adorable hamsters!


To date, about 40,000 copies of two books that contain hamster butts have been sold around Japan. Another book is being prepared for publication.

Takeshi Takahashi, a representative of one of the Hamuketsu book publishers, said, “The great thing about Hamuketsu is that it is delightfully cute. I can’t stop smiling when I see these butts.”
