7 – High-fives for Kikuchi-kun

Festival crowds high-five Kikuchi-kun, an unofficial mascot for Kikuchi city in Kumamoto prefecture. The character apparently combines a range of local charms including melons (hair), hot springs (eyebrows), cherry petals (mouth) and dairy farming (legs). Photo: Daniel Hurst
