Yuru-kyara (a mascot)

Some of mascots which represent a organization or a company are called ‘Yuru-kyara’. They are in a spot light in Japan at the moment.
What attracts people to Yuru-kyara is their cute and unique appearance


We have a lot of Yuru-kyara in Okayama
I'll show you some


Kinto-kun

He is Kinto-kun from Shouou town.
His appearance is based on the hero in an old tale, Kin-taro.
He is wearing a helmet with kanji letter which expresses the name of the town.
It’s cool



Kuramoni 
おもちゃ王国 091
This is a mascot of Kurashiki morning market.
It puts wisteria flowers which grow in Kurashiki City on its head.
The design on the hat and pants reminds us the pattern of the wall of Japanese traditional houses.
It walks shaking its bottom. So cute

From OHK broadcasting station, Oh! kun is probably the most popular Yuru-kyara in Okayama.
From what I heard, he isn’t tidy as he hasn’t washed his loincloth for a long time


Sato-maru

He is from Nagi town.
He is designed to promote local vegetables. For that reason, he has a taro on his head, also he is wearing asparagus and a Welsh onion in his belt.
I’m not sure if he is attractive, but I can say he is unforgettable in some way…


Uchikko

Her head looks like an onion, but it’s not
