Yuruchara (Mascot) Summit | HANYU

November 25, 2017 @ 09:00 - November 26, 2017 @ 15:30

An ONLY IN JAPAN event! 400 Mascots from cities and towns and even products parade down the runway on the grounds of Saitama Aquarium at this popular annual event in Hanyu.

Funassyi is set to attend the festival on Sunday the 26th. Other characters attending this year (2017):

Last year they even have mascots participating from different countries around the world including Germany, Taiwan and America. Last year over 40 mascots from overseas attended this Guinness World Record Holding event. The biggest number of participants from overseas they had to date. Will there be even more this year!? The festival is also known for its gourmet.
