Two of my friends love this character and when they saw he was coming to Osaka asked me to go and take pictures. So here you can all enjoy…!
Funassyi (ふなっしー Funasshī?) is a Japanese mascot character, unofficially representing the city of Funabashi, Chiba. It was created by a citizen of Funabashi to promote his/her own website. It later appeared at events, festivals, TV programs and commercials, gaining popularity all over Japan.
The pop up store event is on in Tsutaya Ebisubashi, the one with Starbucks in it by Dotonbori bridge. The store is open until September 21st, then I believe it will move on to Kobe Sannomiya store later.
Up to the third floor.
I love Osaka themed Funassyi, we have takoyaki, obachan, Hanshin Tigers, Tsutenkaku and Osaka Castle!
They had some limited release goods but only the bag was available when I visited.
I got a special stamp.

Love the back of Funassyi!
Hope you enjoyed the virtual tour!
