The “Stuffed Horikirin” was born as the mascot character of Horikiri. The charm of this character is his cute, curly eyes and the tiara of irises, which is a synonym for Horikiri.
- Horikirin, the idol of Horikiri
- The idea for the Horikirin came from a local elementary school student in 2011, and was studied by the Horikiri Area Town Development Promotion Council’s Revitalization Town Development Study Group. It is a giraffe with big eyes, irises on its head, and a kind heart.
In 2013, a “stuffed animal of Horikirin” was created, and it participates in various local events such as Horikiri Festa, Katsushika Iris Festival, and Katsushika Food Festa, as well as Yurukyara events, to promote the charms of Horikiri to the whole country.
Also, in 2015, Katsushika Ward awarded us with the “Katsushika Ward Collaborative Town Development” award.
- Katsushika Iris Festival “Yurukyara Parade”
- In the 2017 Katsushika Iris Festival “Yurukyara Parade,” 17 Yurukyara from Katsushika Ward and its neighborhood, led by Horikirin, participated in the event, which was a great success.
- Horikirin Park
- There is a park named after “Horikirin” in the Horikiri Lucky Street shopping district. The park has a cute slide with an illustration of Horikirin and an information board, and is loved by the local children.
