YES Studio & Octopus Boy

“Meet the Minamisanriku Revival Octopus Society and ‘Octopus Boy’!”

“Meet the Minamisanriku Revival Octopus Society and ‘Octopus Boy’!”

The staff of YES Studio gathers around “Octopus Boy,” a popular character that resembles an octopus, a specialty of Minamisanriku. The studio, which remodeled the former Iriya Junior High School, is creating new products one after another that utilize the local resources of Minamisanriku. We wish everyone success and happiness together with Octopus Boy!

The most popular creation of YES Studio is the Octopus Boy figurine, which is now a famous symbol of the revival, and also has a message of “good luck” for students to pass their examinations. Why not experience coloring your own Octopus Boy figurine and pray for the revival of Tohoku. If you’re lucky, you may also have the chance to meet the life-size Octopus Boy.
