In this campaign, you can sweat comfortably, get excited about the unseen scenery at the end of the hill, and enjoy the sense of accomplishment you climbed. Focusing on the charm of “slopes” that everyone has experienced at least once, we will convey the joy of walking in the outside world through “Pokémon GO”.
The stage of the new commercial, which will be aired on Friday, January 20th, is the Fukiya district, which has prospered since the Edo period as one of Japan’s leading producers of copper and red iron oxide, and is dyed red with yellow iron oxide. Bengara is a red pigment made from a by-product of copper production. It is also used in many traditional crafts that Japan is proud of, and is also known as “Japan Red”.
Set in Fukiya Furusato Village, Pokémon such as “Hikozaru”,
“Yayakoma”, “Biriridama”, “Nyabby”, “Darumaka”, and “Charizard” will appear while walking up the slopes. The excitement of Mr. Takahata who enjoys “Pokemon GO” will be heightened. Continuing from the previous commercial, please pay attention to the appearance of Mr. Takahata speaking in the Okayama dialect, “It was a fun slope.”
In Fukiya Furusato Village, from January 20th (Friday) to July 19th (Wednesday), the former Fukiya Elementary School will set up a “Real Pokestop” with a height of about 4m, and Pokémon that appear in the commercial will be set up. We will hold an in-game linked event that will make it easier to appear in “Pokemon GO”.
In addition, at various locations in Fukiya Furusato Village, red-colored noren curtains with Pokemon silhouettes and tapestries showing the way to real PokéStops, which can only be seen here, will be on display. Please look for what kind of Pokemon you can find while enjoying the slopes in Fukiya Furusato Village.

[Takahashi City staff comment]
Q: Please tell us what led to the implementation of this measure. Fukiya is a town that prospered from the end of the Edo period to the Meiji period as one of Japan’s leading producers of copper and red iron oxide. It is characterized by copper-colored Sekishu tiles built by wealthy merchants and red-brown townscapes. Nowadays, cafes and red-brown dyeing workshops that make use of the mansions are also popular. The Fukiya area is attractive not only for the townscape of the hometown village, which is the stage of the commercial, but also for various other places in the town. I sympathized.
Q: Please give a message to everyone participating in the “Let’s go on the slopes of Japan” campaign.
In our efforts with “Pokemon GO”, we will set up a real pocket stop of about 4m at the former Fukiya Elementary School, which was used as the oldest wooden school building until the school closed in March 2012, and various places in the hometown village. We will exhibit the noren dyed with red iron oxide, which was specially produced for this campaign.
We hope that you will enjoy the unified red and beautiful townscape of Fukiya, which is the birthplace of the Japanese heritage “Japan Red”, along with “Pokemon GO”.
