Kagawa prefecture is continuing to show its love for its Pokémon ambassador Slowpoke. Along with coming out with official merchandise, it has Slowpoke involved in the local mail. A Slowpoke-themed mailbox was recently unveiled, with a person in a Slowpoke costume there to help.
But that’s not all! In keeping with the theme, there’s a Slowpoke mail truck now as well.
The local post office is also offering Slowpoke stamps for the remainder of the year, but these are meant for decorations and won’t get anything mailed.
If you were in the area, would you want to check these out as part of tourism?
