Blog - Where's Peko?
Peko-chan is the popular mascot of Fujiya (a bakery/restaurant chain) since 1950. There are big collectors of all sorts of Peko-chan figures and other collectibles, and now some people are trying to hit the jackpot by stealing the huge store-front figures (110cm, 10Kg) and selling them on auction sites!
So far 31 have been stolen in the Kantō area.
This photo was taken at the depachika below MyCity (Shinjuku). Between her feet appears to be some kidnapping prevention device.
