Once again Japan has knocked our socks off with its capacity for creating cuteness, this time in the form of real, functioning bus stops modeled after an exceptionally sweet scene from My Neighbor Totoro.
The first stop pictured above is located in Saikai City in Nagasaki, and includes a large Totoro statue that gets revamped every few years.
The second bus stop is “for an area known as “Totoro” (ととろ) in Oita Prefecture, which Facebook user Rebecca Terada recently checked out. Nearby, there are even little stone Totoros and a catbus you can pose with. Likewise, this is a real, working bus stop.”
So now, when we finally get that Japanese field trip organized, we can add “Wait at the bus stop for the Catbus with Totoro” to our to-do list.
