FORGET awards for service excellence, airline facilitation and passenger satisfaction – Tokyo’s Narita Airport has really hit the big time by having the region’s official mascot named as Japan’s favourite.
The cute half-aeroplane, half-eel creation (pictured) is called Unari-kun and was selected after receiving almost 1m votes in an annual poll.
Unari-kun is a hybrid of Narita airport and unagi freshwater eels, with Narita deputy mayor Kenji Sekine confessing he was “close to tears” as he accepted the award.
