Puppy Rafu-kun is the Fuji Television mascot whose name is derived from the English word “laugh” and was originally a character for a TV show broadcast in 1998. You can find Rafu these days on all sorts of adverts and available in many types of products, but his background has not yet been made public in much detail.

We have been to Odaiba every time we go to Japan, but last September (2014) was the first time we ever noticed Rafu-kun.

He was everywhere, from the stairs to all the booths,Nooks and even on logs.

He is on the ticket to the observation deck of Fuji TV.
