Another entry for my “Cuteness is Everywhere” file. 😉
During my bus ride to Shizuoka-ken’s Board of Education (BOE), the bus stopped at a rest stop for lunch. It was a cloudy day, so Mount Fuji wasn’t visible, but in the rest stop where all kinds of Mount Fuji plushies. Each one featured Fuji-san with a wide smile, blue base, and white snowy top. Charmed, I couldn’t resist picking up one. The kawaii was just too much! Overcome, I chose one with fat, chubby fists flailing and a welcoming smile. On his back is the Japanese flag, and the tag reads (in English): Mt. Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan! Why yes, Fuji plushie, you speak the truth.
