At Kameoka Station,

たぬきがたくさん。

there were lots of raccoons.

f:id:minami-no-neko:20180831091340j:plain

 

なぜかと言いますと、

This is why. Raccoon in Japanese is ‘Tanuki.’ The sound ‘ta’

could mean ‘the others.’ ’Nuki’ could mean ‘to excel.’ Together,

‘tanuki’ represents the service which excels the others,

a play on a Japanese word.
