Kagoshima in the News

I've written about Satsuma Kenshi Hayato before, he's the black-costumed superhero that represents the Kagoshima region and makes appearances at various events and stage shows. Turns out that he's starred in several local promotional movies, not just the one I wrote about last year.

Well, the Asahi newspaper has a feature story about the rising popularity of local advertising mascots, and the first half of the article is about Satsuma Hayato. Check it out.
