Battle of Japan: unauthorized Funassyi vs fake Funasshii

It’s the law in Japan—everything must have a cute mascot—a yuru-kyara / yuru-kyara japanese loose character mascot {lit. ‘loose character’ or ‘floppy mascot’} (3Yen / 2013-01-31).

Yesterday, Funabashi city’s unauthorized* mascot character, Funassyi (Wiki), who represents that city just next to Tokyo in Chiba Prefecture, got into a bit of trouble. A faux Funasshii (sic) showed up at a major event and started “playing” with children until the police noticed the mascot was behaving oddly and hinky with the kids.


*“Unauthorized” because when the real
Funassyi visited the Funabashi City Office to be
authorized & supported officially, the Funabashi
Municipal Government refused to approve poor
Funassyi as their official character even though
it ranks No. 1 in the mascot popularity polls.

    It does not surprise me that this fake Funassyi was busted in Kakogawa-city, the most fun-hating city of Japan.

    I used to have a windsurfing spot there, and there was a piece of land next to the road where everybody parked, since it was unused. Way and behold, they closed it off, because it was against the rules. The result was that all surfers parked on the road, which caused much more trouble. But then again, the cops came by sometimes to fine the hell out of those cars.

    Other example: not allowed to ride a horse on public streets in Kakogawa. Not that I want to…
