Big Brother


This pink elephant in front of this pharmacy is Satoko-chan. You can see her older brother, Sato-chan, looking out for her from inside the store.

They are both a mascot for Sato Pharmaceutical, a big pharmaceutical company in Japan. It said on their website that they chose an elephant as a mascot as they are famous for having long lives.

This Satoko-chan is always wearing something different. I noticed she recently changed into this lovely nightgown-ish outfit so I took this photo. Her brother is probably worried the sexy outfit will give the wrong idea to playboy elephants!

Beautiful indeed. And yes, always good to know, that there's someone behind, "taking care".

Please have a good Sunday.

Cute mascots. Funny though, to me a 'pink elephant' is a hallucination you have when you've had too much alcohol to drink.

It's funny. It's the first time that I see a pink elephant. Great.

Your take on the pair is funny.

Maybe there is a precedent for putting clothes on wayside statues.

What with Sato and Kowa, we are well on our way to a kind of pharmaceutical Noah’s Ark.
