Pisser presser

As I have written before*, according to Japanese law everything must have a cute mascot—a yuru-kyara / yuru-kyara japanese loose character mascot—literally a ‘loose character’ or ‘floppy mascot’.

Now, the representative of fermented soybean is on a self-appointed crusade to promote the prefecture north of Tokyo and do what it can to raise the region’s profile, using its trademark “neba!” (sticky) at the end of sentences.
