Isn’t he cute?

 

His name is Pipo-kun*, and he is the mascot character of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department.

Pipo-kun was born in 1987 to make the citizens of Tokyo have friendly feelings toward the police department, and tighten the bond between the citizens of Tokyo and the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department.

The name is pronounced “PeePo”, and it is after “PEople” and “POlice”.

 

Pipo-kun is not a certain animal.

He has big ears to listen to the citizens’ voices, big eyes to watch every corner in the society, and antenna to catch the move of the society!

You can find him at police boxes or the Police Department office or any signs they put in town, therefore, he is widely known in Japan.

* “Kun is used by persons of senior status in addressing or referring to those of junior status, or by anyone when addressing or referring to male children or male teenagers. (-Japanese honorifics- from wikipedia )”
