Will Tokyo Sky Tree collapse if it doesn't have a mascot?

I'm really curious to know how many bureaucrats and former Diet members will join Tobu as senior advisors upon retirement from their careers.

Love the cute character.

Whatever you say about Japan, if one thing is certain... they sure know how to do characters!

God, there has to be a goofy mascot for everything in Japan.

Then I'm sure someone will make some ero drawings of this mascot as well, like they do all the others.

Yes because there would be nothing for people to buy when they get there.
