Geo Maru And Nunokawa Paper Toy Mascots - by Itogawa Geopark



These cute paper toys are the mascots of Itogawa Geopark, in Japan. The little globe is Geo Maru and his two colors represent the Itoigawa-Shizuoka Tectonic Line, that is a major fault on Honshu island that runs from the city of Itoigawa, Niigata Prefecture, through Lake Suwa to the city of Shizuoka in Shizuoka Prefecture. It is often confused with Fossa Magna which lies to the east. Recent surveys show that this failure has a 30% chance to cause a major earthquake in the next 30 years. The little doll is Nuna and she is based on the legendary goddess and Princess of Itoigawa, Nunakawa. She is a friendly, caring, and wise princess, with a great love for Itoigawa, the Jade Kingdom, and her subjects who live there.
