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.
