Check out this curious story about the new Japan’s Tourism Ambassador...Hello Kitty.
What’s most interesting is that the reason to put Hello Kitty as Japan Tourism Ambassador is because of its widespread popularity among children and young women in China and Hong Kong.
And the role of this Tourism Ambassador position is supposedly to increase tourism…
…so, being pretty open about who we’d like to see more of coming to Japan, eh?
Judging from this man’s face he’s already thinking about a bunch of young Chinese women in mini skirts strolling around his office… :)
