    Maybe Barclay's and some of the other British banks could do with a cute mascot to take people's mind's off of the LIBOR fixing scandal that is rocking the banking world.

    Just as McArthur said:

    "Japan is a nation of children".

    I love the mascots! Hikone, Shiga has a great festival every autumn that has about 100 mascots from across Japan. It is great to go out and see them and learn about different cities, prefectures and companies around Japan.
