The official name of the Kewpie doll, which is also a pioneer of Japanese characters, is "Obitsu Kewpie®". This is an original product that Obitsu Manufacturing has been producing in Japan since its founding in 1966. A costume version of the key chain is now available for such a long-selling national character. The design of the costume is a “Maneki Neko” which is a symbol of good luck. In addition, it has been changed to an “orange” color with the intention of prospering for generations. The costume can be taken off.
It is recommended not only for yourself, but also as an auspicious gift for your loved ones.
