Melon Kuma is probably the most unique yet simple mascot in Japan -it’s a bear with a half melon half bear for a head – that comes from Yubari (the melon rich town on the island of Hokkaido) and a bear that is (was) frequently found on Hokkaido.
Simple. Creative. Cute and Scary.
This is why we wish we could dedicate a feature film about Melon Kuma but sadly we only have this short edit of him skiing.
One of the main reasons we travel to Japan is to experience something outside of our culture. Melon Kuma, Yubari, and Mount Racey all embody this more than other resort in Japan.
