This 84-Year-Old Grandfather Is The Instagram Influencer We Didn’t Know We Needed In Our Lives

Rural Grandpa No More

In an interview, Kudo said, “it was quite a transformation to see my rural grandpa, who has no interest in fashion, in outfits he would never consider wearing on his own.” Tetsuya was apparently “surprisingly enthusiastic” about participating, and was heavily involved in choosing the locations for their shoots and suggesting poses.

The rest of Naoya and Tetsuya’s family are big supporters of the project as well. They “went wild when they first saw him dressed up,” said Kudo.
