Construction barrier animals

10 years ago by in Travel

In Japan even the construction barriers are made to look cute. Here’s my collection of various animals used to guide pedestrians around roadworks and block off construction sites. Various animals include a rabbit, two types of frog, a penguin, monkey, and what I guess are two raccoons or tanuki. See more here.

To find out more about Japanese mascots check out my book, Idle Idol.

I think the animal barriers are a great idea and make boring construction sites a little more fun. What do you think. If you spot any others let me know, I’d love to see them.
