The story behind Gunma-chan
Although today Gunma-chan is a bipedal pony that the children of the Gunma region love, in the past the mascot of the National Athletics Festival was very different.
In its beginnings Gunma was a quadruped horse under the name of “Yuuma” in 1983, becoming in 2008 one of the most adorable pets in the environment that transcended its role in the festival.
He is currently as popular as characters like Domo-kun in the middle, appearing on TV, promoting food products, clothing brands, and winning competitions.
