Kyoto Tower is holding a stamp rally from December 25 to January 31 themed on the ongoing anime series Okoshiyasu, Chitose-chan. The series follows the adventures of the cute emperor penguin Chitose-chan who strolls curiously around famous places in Kyoto. The stamp rally will have participants collection stamps from three places that appear in the anime series: the Kyoto Municipal Subway, Kyoto Aquarium and Kyoto Tower.
Each stamp rally location has been given its own name: “Ride Kyoto Municipal Subway,” “Enter Kyoto Aquarium” and “Climb Kyoto Tower.”
Each spot earns you a unique stamp based on that location. What’s more is that if you get involved, the first 1,000 people at each spot will receive an original Chitose-chan folder (pictured below).
Kyoto Tower will also be decorated with panels and boards displaying scenes from the anime.
Kyoto Aquarium appeared in episode 10 of the anime on December 7. Kyoto Tower will appear in episode 11 which airs on December 14. If you’re in Japan this month then follow Chitose-chan’s trip around Kyoto!
