At MEITETSU Department Store in Nagoya, [W:Aichi Prefecture], there is a 6 meters (20ft) tall mannequin called “Nana-chan” enjoying various kinds of fashion. (“Chan” is Japanese suffix for familiar person.)
This is current Nana-chan.
The department store first placed Nana-chan at the entrance in 1973. Since then, Nana-chan has been a landmark of the city. Because it is right next to JR Nagoya Station, people often use Nana-chan area as a meeting place.
Nana-chan’s dress is changed once a month. Last year, she wore 18 different costumes. It can be a cute dress like above picture, or a special promotion costume. You never know what she wears next!

In a school costume.
Although she was born (made) in Swiss, she shows patriotic spirit to Japan.

Last but not least. Nana-chan in a canned coffee GEORGIA lol.
