Mascot festival countdown event! | HANYU

August 25, 2018 @ 10:00 - 17:00

Mascot Festival Countdown event

Mascot Festival Countdown event…

Because what is a mascot event without a countdown…!!

Mascot festival countdown event

For the last 9 years there has been a mammoth mascot festival or mascot summit, Yuruchara (as featured on this blog), in Hanyu. This year, they have decided to really milk the money making machine that mascots are. (Try saying that fast five times in a row!).

Mascots from many different cities across Japan will participate, including some of Saitama’s own. The countdown event features a number of stage performances from mascots. Please see the official website linked in the grey details box below for the full line up and schedule. Unlike the main event which attracts thousands, this is quite a small festival (and very child friendly) with only about 2,000 spectators expected. There are food booths and merchandise stalls at the event also.

Mascot Festival Countdown event access

About 4.5 kilometers or 20 minutes drive from the Tohoku Expressway’s Hanyu Interchange.
