Mascot character’s sign language ability improved


Katy City, Hyogo Prefecture near Osaka made a first Sign Language Regulation be formed as an autonomous body in Kinki area in November, 2014. 

The character-costume mascot that represents the city, called  "Den-no-suke," started to show sign language at an event, a public relations magazine, etc. for the purpose of promotion of the citizen's understanding.

Because "Den-no-suke" had the fingers too thick to express sign language well, it was sent for improvement (photo).

City officials said they have used the mascot character since about eight years ago.
