Japan unveils Tokyo 2020 Olympics superhero mascots

Men looks at the construction site of the New National Stadium main stadium of Tokyo 2020 More

In addition to serving as the Official Tire of the Olympic Games and a Worldwide Olympic Partner for Tokyo 2020, Bridgestone Corporation also is a Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games Gold Partner.

Elementary-school students from across Japan chose the creature as the mascot for the Summer Olympics in Tokyo in 2020.

"I thought that something combining futuristic and traditional elements would perfectly fit the image of Japan and Tokyo", he said. The Mascot has a strong sense of justice, and is very athletic.

The losing pairs were a lucky cat and a fox of Design B and Design C's glum fox and raccoon.

PyeongChang 2018 mascots dance during the Closing Ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. Each class could cast a single vote in favor of one of the three competing entries. The victor was announced on Wednesday at a school in the city. He said he was very happy to hear the news that the design he had voted for won, and that taking part in the selection process had been a great experience, making him feel like he was "part of (the games)".

The business of mascots is huge in Japan, earning millions in sales from several products which adopt it, and an ecstatic but visibly overwhelmed designer of the winning mascot, Ryo Taniguchi who is an illustrator from Fukuoka stated that he wants to tell his "beloved wife" that he's been "chosen". The Mascot also has a special power allowing it to move anywhere instantaneously. The event has not given names to the mascots.

Insurance companies market their services with a cuddly mascot, the famous Jimmy Hatori - a ninja with a large pink condom on his head - promotes safe sex, and even the Asahikawa prison in Hokkaido has a mascot - a humanoid with a big smiling face and a large purple flower for hair, dressed in the prison warden's uniform.

"I am sure that it will lead to the Japanese athletes delivering good results at the 2020 Tokyo Games".

2020 Olympics is set to take place from July 24 to August 9 in Tokyo, Japan.
