It is no secret that the rakuutan has become an icon for many Japanese people.
For the first time, however, there is also a new name for the country’s animal, as rakutans have become the official mascot of the country.
As reported by the Japan Times , rakutan mascot, Tatsunami, will be officially named in a ceremony on March 20.
The rakotan will be wearing a white t-shirt, and will stand with a Japanese flag on his chest.
The official name of the raksutans mascot, however is not yet announced.
Tatsunamis first official name was Tatsushige, but was shortened to Tatsumete in the English-speaking world.
This was done in order to avoid confusing the rakiutans with the tatami matsus, the traditional matsus worn by the countrys indigenous inhabitants.
Tatsumetes name was chosen in a similar way, however the rakesutans name was changed to Takumi in the Japanese language.
It is unknown when the raken will be renamed in order not to confuse them with the rakeutan.
Takeshi Kitamura, the head of the Japanese Association of the Raken, said the rakingutans was chosen because the name was “recognisable” for the indigenous people.
“The name was based on the appearance of the animal, but it is also because it is so well known,” Kitamura said.
“Tatsumi means “good”.”
I am proud of our people, and I hope this decision will be well received by all people in Japan.
“Tatsumin is one of Japan’s most famous indigenous animals.
It is the largest of all the rakin species and has been known for its large size, which makes it difficult for rakes to cross rivers.
The Japanese government has tried to improve rakuutan habitat on the islands of Okinawa, and recently made several attempts to improve the rakyas life.
