Yuru-chara are mascot characters who promote local products and tourism, and today many municipalities have their own Yuru-chara. Basically, they look lovely and comfort people’s minds but some of them are ugly a bit, but those Yuru-chara also have fascinated people.
As you can see Yuru-cara are mascots and it’s hard for them to move quickly, but a running event took place in Tokyo on April 22nd. It is called “The Easiest Running Fes (日本一ゆる～いランニングイベント“ＲＵＮフェス”～春のＲＵＮ祭り～)”! The event was not hard at all so little kids could join and enjoy it with Yuru-chara.
