Coming from the Kumamoto Japanese prefecture, which he is the mascot, the small bear Kumamon was born in March 2011, when the Kyushu Shinkansen line opened. He also won the big national mascot contest that year!
He loves to show us surprising and funny things hidden around us and to promote his prefecture that he loves so much. He was also appointed commercial manager by Kumamoto’s governor!
All are welcome to meet Kumamon and dance, laugh, and have fun with him!
