[What is sandal bye-bye…]
Keywords to prevent drowning accidents caused by chasing after washed away sandals, etc. (Water accidents in which people drown after chasing washed away sandals have occurred for six consecutive years. According to our research.) You can buy sandals, but you can’t buy life. “Let’s say goodbye to the washed away sandals.” So far, the message “Bye Bye Sandals” has received more than 3,000 likes on Twitter. The related videos have been viewed over 100,000 times and are currently being updated. It won the Kids Design Award as a keyword that can be directly linked to the accident prevention action of “don’t chase things that have been washed away.” It is also used as a teaching material for safety education at public elementary and junior high schools nationwide.
