Obviously, you want to buy the balloon floodlight called, “taru_drunkman” (bellow), the happily wasted salaryman mascot for your road construction company, right?

Of course “Taru_Drunkman” (たるのんべぇ) is a lot more fun than the Lightboy Company‘s sycophantic “Taru_Guardman” (たるガードマン) shown below.

The new Japanese monkfish mascot “Ankimo” could be more properly described as “Eat-Me-While-You-Can kun“.
The name “Eat-Me-While-You-Can” is due to the popularity of ankimo liver, is wildly overfished in neither a sustainable or ethical way in Japan (or worse China), grrrr.

Japan’s first mascot?

snow-mascot-japan-geisha
Here’s maybe the “first” loose character (ゆるキャラ) mascot of Japan, Yukidaruma-chan OG (雪ダルマちゃんOG).
The snowman/girl was made of cotton balls and wears a laid-back hemp headband. The snowgirl mascot was posed on fake snow in a photography studio with five hangyoku/geisha including the celebrity, Sakae (in yellow) from Tokyo’s hinky Shitaya district (circa 1910).
