The top photo shows the E7-Series Shinkansen/bullet train (Wiki) and the bottom is the “loose character”*, Burikatsu-kun, of Sado Island in Niigata Prefecture. Burikatsu is Japanese Yellow-tail that is a favorite fish that Niigata promotes with the expert loose help of their Burikatsu-kun mascot. Check out the Burikatsu-kun image collection and also his official website: burikatsu.com.

    And speaking of severed fish heads, how could I ever forgot the Millennium’s Mascot Meeting of the Minds:
    Tokyo Tower’s pink penis mascot, Noppon (3Yen / 2011-08-05) shown on the left and fishhead, Katuoningen, shown on the right?
    Read the-rest-of-the-story of that meeting on the Noppon’s official website.
