YurukyaraGrandPrix6Profile:

Yuririn is the town’s celestial maiden mascot character that was designed in 2012 incorporating elements of the towns specialty products, a local legend of a celestial maiden, as well as the town’s ties to Hawaii County (Hawaii, USA) and its own Hawai district.

Her hair is the bright green color of the region’s famous 20th Century Pears, and the flowers adorning her hair are the beautiful pear blossoms that bloom each spring.

She wears a light blue shawl representing heavenly robes (hagoromo) and a colorful lei made of the evening glory flowers that appear in the Legend of the Celestial Maiden.

Yurihama is located along the coast off the Sea of Japan, and her flowing dress symbolizes the rolling waves of the sea.

The lei and her dress are also meant to give her a Hawaiian feel to represent Yurihama’s sister-city relationship with Hawaii County and past promotional campaigns calling the town the “Hawaii of Japan” due to its Hawai district (formerly the town of Hawai).
