However, a security officer from Tokyo’s busy Roppongi district is doing his part to make sure this family of ducks survives the urban jungle. @tenguyokoyama was in the right place and the right time to film the heartwarming scene, which has been shared on Twitter over 333k times since.

As if that wasn’t enough, this fine gent also bowed in thanks to all the vehicles who stopped momentarily to let this feathered parade pass. He is simply too good, too pure for this world (✿◕‿◕)
