Puppy Rafu-kun is the Fuji Television mascot whose name is derived from the English word “laugh” and was originally a character for a TV show broadcast in 1998. You can find Rafu these days on all sorts of adverts and available in many types of products, but his background has not yet been made public in much detail.
On the island of Odaiba stands the Fuji TV building.
We have been to Odaiba every time we go to Japan, but last September (2014) was the first time we ever noticed Rafu-kun.
He was everywhere, from the stairs to all the booths,Nooks and even on logs.
He is on the ticket to the observation deck of Fuji TV.
I only wish I knew who designed him. Stay tuned to our YouTube channel where we will show you a lot more from Odaiba and Fuji TV.
Gundam theme park in Japan opening on 19 Apr 2012.
“Gundam Front Tokyo” is a small theme park that will open in Odaiba, located near the life-size Gundam statue that has been re-erected. There will be a free exhibition area that includes display of Gunpla and a shop for you to purchase them. In addition, there will be a paid area where visitors would need to pay a small fee to enter and see cool Gundam exhibits that are put on display.
We were there in 2009 when it was built and in 2010 went to Shizuoka to see it there and next year we will be back to see it in it’s final spot!
