This Is The Japanese God of Drunkards

Kochi, Japan — Found directly across from the ticket gates of the Kochi Station, right beside a bakery/ coffee shop, is this naked mascot, with swirly eyes, holding two sake cups (called o-choko in Japanese) on each of his fingerless hands, and balancing a sake flask (called tokkuri) on his head. Just one glance and the person would know that this mascot is clearly drunk. But make no mistake. He is not just a mascot. He is Berobero no Kamisama, the God of Drunkards, and he watches over the Japanese prefecture of Kochi, which is a place known for its sake.
