I found that Yaeyama region of Okinawa has a cutest cat mascot character who named Pikaryaa.
He (Pikaryaa is a legendary wild big cat boy!) is not only a mascot character but sightseeing and advertising manager of Yaeyama region. He has some spots on his tummy, these are very looks alike Yaeyama islands.
We could find him everywhere in Ishigaki island or Yaeyama region islands.
I got his ball-point pen as a souvenir for myself.
Kyoko Okazaki is a manga artist who made huge impact in 1980s-90s.
Her manga books are not suit for small children, but for late teens or grown-ups.
She drew poetic and realistic and painful stories with cute and sexy characters, it’s not as like ordinary happy-ending lovely girls’ manga books.
She was forced to stopped her career since 1996, a sudden traffic accident.
Still now, so many people loves her work. We can see her almost of all works in this exhibition.
I got washi tapes of Okazaki’s sexy girls from “I wanna be your dog”.
