A few weeks ago, I was walking through the Yamakataya department store when I encountered this big squirrel mascot. His name is Minto-kun. I think he's promoting skin care products or something. Regardless, the young girl in her mother's arms was terrified by him. What's interesting about this costume is that the person inside can move their hands from the arms of the costume up to the ears to make them wiggle, and back.
(Can you guess where his hands are?)
