Tokyo today…TAXI DAY!

Tokyo Taxi Association’s
“TAKKUN” mascot ⬇


Yes, today is TAXI DAY.
Way, way back on August 5, 1919, Japan’s first taxis started operation in Tokyo. The taxi company, Jidosha Kabushikigaisha began with six cars operating from where Yurakucho Mullion is located in present-day Ginza in downtown Tokyo.

Squid named ‘Happy’

Squid have two arms and eight tentacles.

Happy’s 11th appendage is an example a squid penile elongation, which has been observed to be as long as the mantle, head, and arms combined.

Our previous squid tentacled reports include:

Japan’s goofiest mascot, Kumamon, has found his true love. That is, his true love-pillow/dakimakura (抱き枕).



Our previous reports of Japanese love of dakimakura pillows include:

Balloon floodlight mascots for happy roadwork in Japan…

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.


Some of our other reports on the charms of Japanese road construction include:



‘Gunny-kun’…soon to be Japan’s newest mascot


Poor Tom Jellybean (L), the mascot of the American Embassy* has a new rival: Gunny-kun, the Gun-Toting Gun.


According to Stephen Colbert, Gunny-kun is perfect for the job.
The jellybean was chosen as the embassy’s mascot because the, ‵countless flavors of jellybeans represent the USA’s diversity.‵
