All of us has someone or something we can call our best friend. It’s a typical situation when we met or knew some people who have a friends like dogs, cats and other animals. But seeing one who has a friend with a marine creature is another new discovered thing.

It was when Hiroyuki Arakawa has been entrusted to to oversee one of the Shinto religion’s shrines called torii, which is located beneath the surface of Japan’s Tateyama Bay. Because of his work he was able to know more of marine creatures which live under the shrine and mostly, he became buddies with a friendly Asian sheepshead wrasse named Yoriko.

The viral video shows their beautiful relationship and Arakawa’s nature of greeting the fish with a kiss. It was then explained that fishes could recognize human faces. And that Arakawa’s relationship with Yoriko became more inspiring.

The diver would kiss the fish as a sign of their friendship every time they meet.

They first met when Arakawa started to work as the entrusted look after an underwater Shinto Shrine. And their friendship got even stronger as decades passed. This is one friendship all of us can learn from.
