Japan is well renowned to be a land of lovers of all things cute. Hello Kitty and Pikachu are two of the biggest starts in Japan because they both rank highly on the adorable meter. Japan lived up to the cute-loving reputation when a police station in Yokohama unveiled a brother sister paring of fraternal twins as their new official mascots.
Cute mascots are nothing new to Japan as most businesses and government establishments have characters different from logos that helps them to stand out. Ajisai and Keyaki have got to be the most otaku-looking I have ever seen and for a police station at that. Only in Japan! More info about the 2 mascots below.
