Japundit just posted a link to the most incredible website I've ever seen: Japanese Mascots.com! It's true that Japan has a fascination with giving everything some cute or hilariously strange mascot. It's not just sports teams that have mascots in Japan. Every prefecture has a mascot. Lots of police forces and fire departments have mascots. Airports, famous towers, food products, the Ministry of Justice, festivals, department stores, universities, newspapers-- you name it, it has a mascot.

Here's a link to a post about Yamaguchi prefecture's police force mascot.

    Thank you! That will be so fun to look at in the future. Looks like there are a lot to see. ^_^ I hate to think what would happen to that police mascot here in the states!
