  Yuru-kyara (local mascots for PR porposes) are popular everywhere in Japan.  I’m not sure why… but maybe Japanese people love cartoon characters, anime and manga.  So that’s why Japan has many famous local mascots.


 There are some Yurukyara here in Hirosaki too.  And my favorite mascot is “Takamaru-kun”.  He is so adorable.  Takamaru-kun named after the Hirosaki castle’s another name, the Takaoka Castle.  “Taka” is a hawk in Japanese.  He was the mascot of 400th anniversary of Hirosaki-jo Castle’s construction.  He is trying hard to promote Hirosaki’s attractions.
