Hakata Old Town Gets a New Mascot

Sennemon, a new character to promote Hakata Sennen no Mon (a historic gate in Hakata) and historical streets near it, was introduced recently. The cheerful image represents the so-called ‘nobosemon’ personality in the region and will introduce the charms of Hakata through online content. Local organizations and events can also use Sennemon’s illustrations for non-profit activities (*approval from Fukuoka City required.) Source: https://hakatanomiryoku.com/sennemon_room
