Japan’s mysterious haniwa are terracotta clay figures were made for ritual use and buried with the dead as funerary objects during Japan’s Kofun period, the 3rd to 6th centuries AD (Wiki).
The haniwa now serve as mascot of the horrors of bureaucracy in Sakai City of Osaka Prefecture, Japan. According to the city’s public relations department, Haniwa section chief, who is about 1600 years old and unmarried, has only posted once last year on the city’s website because he has been too stressed at his bureaucratic responsibilities.(shikoku-np.co.jp news, Google Translate).

You might ask, WTF is with these hanging ghosts made of toilet paper?
They are ‘Teru teru bozu’—a rain-rain-go-away-come-again-another-day effigy and Japan’s creepiest character. Japanese children make these talismans that are supposed to have magical powers to bring good weather and to prevent a rainy day (Wiki).
Hi-tech Japan is always on the cutting edge of innovation…
