A Japanese couple have gone viral around the world, thanks to their habit of coordinating their outfits.

The couple started their current Instagram account, bonpon511, in December, when their daughter, Ms. May, suggested they get a joint account. They started matching their outfits because they noticed they already had matching hair.


Mrs. Pon said they don't have any strict rules for their outfits, apart from some coordination: "We decide based on how we feel each day. We like monotones, red and blue, so inevitably we decide on colors we both like."

People from across the world follow their account. They think their photos are adorable and Mr. Bon and Mrs. Pon are the ideal couple.


"Bon is a work-centered person who leaves early in the morning and only comes back after midnight," she said. "We've been married for nearly 37 years, but I think we only stayed together for about one-third of that time."

"We're finally retiring this March, so I'm very happy to think that at last we'll have more time for us to spend together," she said. "We'd like to recover the time we missed and live the rest of our lives happily together."
