Hanging from a college student’s book bag. I asked if I could photograph the little creature with his mouth wide open. She told me it was Domo!
So I looked up Domo and learned about him and realize I am really behind the times in not having met him before. He’s been around awhile.
And I just met him now. And a quote from Wikipedia “Domo’s favorite food is nikujaga, a Japanese meat and potato stew, and he has a strong dislike for apples because of an unexplained mystery in his DNA” You can check him out in stop animation features on Youtube, too.
And the urban dictionary says “Domo-kun is a small brown open-mouthed monster (hatched from an egg) who lives with a wise old rabbit underground and really, really likes TV. Domo-kun is the mascot of NHK’s BS2”
There are book bags and plush toys and I have never noticed him until a couple of weeks ago and that open mouth caught my eye.
