Getting a new bank account has never been so much fun!
I went to set up a new bank account recently. The mascot of this bank appears to be the chokingyo. I LOVE the chokingyo. “Chokin” (Choh-keen) in Japanese means “bank savings” and “kingyo” (keen-gyoh) means goldfish, so…it’s the savings goldfish. When T-san from the office saw that I liked her chokingo fan, she brought one in for me!^^
This is…a fan with a watermelon that is being eaten by a goldfish as advertisement for a bank. Many stores and businesses give out fans as part of their promotions, but still, this one is pretty special haha. I hung it up in my hallway next to my Disney one (which advertises for DeoDeo, an electronics store)
The Disney fan.
Just see if you make it through a summer in Japan without getting handed a fan of some kind…the fan on the right is from Softbank, a Japanese cell phone company, and the smaller one on the left was being given out at Miyajima.
Advertising in Japan is fun! I now have the first two fans on my wall, with a couple to spare. I have folders to put my papers in, and a new notepad^^
