Full of Special Benefits! Funassyi Event Is Being Held Now in Osaka!

Funassyi is supposed to be a pear fairy living in Funabashi City, Chiba Prefecture, one of the super popular “yuru-kyara” in Japan; the cute and cuddly mascots created to promote cities and prefectures. It moves unbelievably energetically despite the costume, and talks in a distinctive way, ending sentences with “nassyi”. It also issues strange words/sounds such as “hyahhaaa” or “pear juice bushaaa” when it is excited. With its character being distinctly different from other “yuru-kyara”, it became quite popular among all ages, and has been very active in TV commercials and various events.
