Maneki Neko Truck and Co.
You've all seen this cat - she beckons you to come into restaurants and stores...she is a "manekineko" which is translated as a "lucky cat" or literally, "invitation-cat". But you probably HAVEN'T seen such a large one next to a Pepto-Bismol P***Mobile such as this. On a day trip around Shimabara hanto (peninsula), I saw these - ah - indulgent rides. It's not Top Gear (in fact, I don't even think there were functional wheels on the pinkmobile!), but I hope you enjoy!
...can you find me in this picture below? Just look for the really crazy hair...
*** that stands for PINK, of course - my godson will be reading this, I'm sure! (~,^) v
