File Under: Things That Make Us Happy

Okay, apparently Japan is no longer satisfied with just having Hello Kitty on EVERY POSSIBLE THING.

The tourism ministry has made the mouthless wunderkitten an official ambassador for Japan. A much better choice than some crusty Japanese politco, methinks.

Now all they have to do is make Chococat the Prime Minister, and I’ll officially love everything about Japan*.

By the way, this all happened back in May. But apparently I wasn’t paying attention then. Just in case you weren’t either, read the NYT article here.

*Except the high prices, the unchecked homeless problem, and icky Japanese businessman on the make — but other than that — I’d love everything.
