"The Eccentric Family" Celebrate Bon as Kyoto's Goodwill Ambassadors

Collaboration between city and "The Eccentric Family 2" includes new artwork for the Kyoto Gozan no Okurubi


The cast of The Eccentric Family 2 have been acting as special goodwill ambassadors for the city of Kyoto as part of an ongoing promotional campaign, and the latest addition to the campaign includes new artwork that promotes the Kyoto Gozan no Okurubi, a gigantic ceremonial bonfire that celebrates the conclusion of the Obon Festival when the spirits of the departed return to the afterlife after visiting their families on Earth.



The new artwork features Benten in yukata (summer kimono) and Yasaburo in tanuki form enjoying the bonfires from a distance, while Yajiro flies through the sky in the shape of the Fake Eizan Electric Car in the background. The artwork is deployed on posters and in postcard form as part of an on-going The Eccentric Family 2-themed stamp rally.


The Kyoto Gozan no Okurubi will be held on August 16, 2017.
