When you go to a Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) in Japan, you see the founder Colonel Sanders’ statue in front of the restaurant. He is called Colonel ojisan (uncle Colonel) and is one of the well-known figures in Japan.
Sometimes they dress Colonel ojisan for a seasonal event. Here are the pictures of him in costumes.
(shogunate police and military force located in Kyoto)
was later prohibited by the company.
“Happi” (Workman’s livery coat)
It says “Kenta Matsuri” meaning KFC Festival.
It says “Colonel Ojisan” on the bottom.
There are two errors in this picture; 1, he is wearing a women’s yukata,

“Neon Genesis EVANGELION”
“The Hanshin Tigers” (famous baseball team in Japan)
Which one do you think the best on him?
By the way, there is an interesting story behind the last picture,“Colonel Sanders in the Hanshin Tigers’ Costume.” I will share the story one of these days. ^^
