THE WAY MMM WAS MEANT TO BE EXPERIENCED!
A SAMPLE SIZED TASTE-TOUR!
Follow this hauntingly happy mascot into the dark... on a tour of his home, the Kinukake Road! Where is that? Upon the frighteningly named 'Silk Draped Mountain' in Kyoto Prefecture!
Curated by the official mascot of the Kinukake Road... Kinukakesan! This spooky fellow will be taking us along the Kinukake Road, to the 3 Unesco World Hertiage sites that are to be found there! From a famed golden pagoda, to a temple known for its ancient and mysterious Zen garden, and all the way to a temple that was destroyed in war... only to rise again! Does that sound like anyone we might know?
Put on your brave face and let's travel along the Kinukake Road!
MUNCH ON A MASCOT-CURATED TASTE-TOUR
Explore a unique part of Japan each month with the help of a local... MASCOT!
EXPERIENCE UNIQUE JAPANESE CULTURE
Enjoy rare specialties from our curating mascot's hometown, and share a bite of some of the weird and wonderful Japanese snacks that they love!
NOGINON OF NOGI TOWN
Noginon is a bright and cheerful sunflower girl... the official mascot of Nogi Town! Always upbeat, she stretches positively toward the sun. What is that strange hat she's wearing, you ask? It's the roof of a 19th century "Hoffman Kiln"!
KAWAMIN & KAWABE
Kawabe is an old fig that was made the mascot of Kawajima Town. Imagine his surprise and pride when the residents of Kawajima Town voted his granddaughter was into the same role 2 years later!
UMIBOZU, THE SHIP BREAKER
On a clear, cool night off the coast of Japan... when the moon is a wide white river on the surface of the sea... wary sailors stay close to shore, for they know that the Umibozu waits beneath the waves.
HACHYAMARU OF HASAMI TOWN
Equipped with an intensely curious gaze and an onsen (hotspring) on their head, Hachyamaru wears a Hasami-porcelain bowl and has an asparagus for a tail. They are the official mascot of Hasami Town!
YAHATAINU, THE POTATO DOG
The official mascot of the City of Kai, as his name implies, Yahatainu is a dog that is also a Yahataimo potato (one of the City of Kai's locally grown items)! While he is usually sleepy and laid-back, he gets angry when folks touch his leaf!
TAIMEE OF MINAMI ISE
In the tranquil sea-side prefecture of Mie, there exists a fish like no other! Taimee is the official mascot of the town of Minami Ise! Their father was a Sea Bream named TaiTarou (父:鯛太郎), and their mother was a mandarin orange (母:みかん).
