Great story from our Japan colleagues at RocketNews24. Gunma is a prefecture in Japan. (Sorta like a district or county- Google wasn’t much help, or I just couldn’t comprehend.) Speaking of “can’t comprehend,” take a look at this. Gunma-Chan is the mascot for, well, Gunma tourism.
Prepare the Squee Rocket for liftoff, Cap’n.
EVERYTHING in Japan has a mascot. Gonna have
nightmares dreams about this for sure.
