Do you know this city is " a little bit" known as a city of cocktail? Because some bartenders have often won prizes at a world cocktail contest. To advertise this city these flowers are put in a huge cocktail grass.
At the event Utsunomiya's mascot characters were there.
One is TOCHIMARU-kun. (TOCHI comes from TOCHIGI prefecture, MARU, and KUN means a boy.)
The other boy is KENTA-kun, of course he is a GYOZA boy. GYOZA (pot stickers) is famous and popular in our city of UTSUNOMIYA.
