The mascot of Japan's Gunma Prefecture, Gunma-chan, was introduced in the article on Gunma's roads and mountains.

The mascot of the prefecture is Gunma-chan, who is a horse (not a squirrel, for which Gunma-chan is often mistaken). Gunma is so named because it is an area that used to be famous for horse breeding. There are many facts about Gunma-chan which are humorous, such as the fact Gunma-chan lives in Tokyo, not in Gunma, never ages past 7 years, and is of indeterminate gender.

Now you can watch everybody's favorite anthromorphised horse dance all around different locations within the prefecture because, well, CUTE and FUN.
