A special range of Toundo’s Niwaka Senpei featuring Hakata Gion Yamakasa’s official character “Oisa” is on sale at the Tourism Promotional Corner of the west side (Shiyakusho Nishigawa) of Fukuoka City Hall Fureai Hiroba. These special senpei have also been on sale at the Ming Hakata Station shopping center and Hakata Machiya Folk Museum since May 15. The collaborative project came about in part due to the participation of Niwaka Senpai staff within the Yamakasa Festival. Source: Hakatanomiryoku, 5/12/2017
