Chicchai Ossan

Chicchai Ossan is one of Japan's top local mascots along with Kumamon and Funassy. There are more than 3000 mascots (called "Yuru Chara" or "Go-torch characters") in Japan, with each representing a specific prefecture or city.
Real name Shinichi Sakata, Chicchai Ossan is a middle-aged Japanese guy from Hyogo prefecture who speaks in Kansai dialect. Chicchai Ossan has become one of Japan's favorite pop culture characters with his sharp tongue and warm fatherly advice, appearing on Harajuku Kawaii Fashion Shows, game shows, and other Interactive events. People in Japan think he is very funny -- ask him to play the national anthem and see what he does! There is a rumor that you can gain good luck if you get a chance to rub his shiny bald head... but you always have to ask him nicely!
