“Kappa Day Photo Contest” will be held
It is said that there are 1,000 to 2,000 kappa statues in
Tanushimaru-cho. We will hold the “Kappa Day Photo Contest” in order to make many people familiar with Tanushimaru’s kappa and to find new kappa that are not known.
Starting with the establishment of “Tanushimaru and Kappa Day” on August 8, this is the second time this year that the event will be held at the same time as the stamp rally.
Selected works will be presented with luxurious local products. [Image
