About Nyan-mage

Nyan-mage was at the forefront of the present ‘yuru-chara’ mascot boom. With a unique combination of small head and long body Nyan-mage has three whiskers on each cheek and a red collar with a golden bell. His super-cute dazed look and shuffling gait is the key to his popularity.

Due to a television commercial urging people to ‘jump at Nyan-mage’ there was a succession of cases where people actually did jump at Nyan-mage, however due to safety concerns this is now prohibited.

History of Nyan-mage

Since birth, Nyan-mage has gone through a number of changes in style - sometimes a little overweight and sometimes trying out a new persona!

During the spring-summer period it’s often possible to find Nyan-mage setting out for a day-trip.

Recently Nyan-mage has slimmed down again and has a bit more of a grown up look. And it looks like Nyan-mage also received a little bit of makeup advice on the side too!

Thanks for your continued support of Nyan-mage!

Mouth Whiskers Whiskers Top Knot Eyes Eyes Welcoming Hand Legs Belly
Top Knot

Top Knot

“A cat but with a top knot!” this is Nyan-mage’s trademark which is also half the reason behind his name. Leaving the hair a little rough gives the appearance of a ronin (masterlass samurai).

Eyes

Eyes

Bright eyes, but it’s hard to tell exactly where he is looking. It is also said that Nyan-mage ‘doesn’t see what he doesn’t want to see’.

Whiskers

Whiskers

This is what gives support to the claim that some people make that Nyan-mage is really a cat. These six straight whiskers are cared for on a daily basis.

Mouth

Mouth

A small, puckered up mouth. Not a fussy eater, Nyan-mage has great table manners.

Welcoming Hand

Welcoming Hand

This is Nyan-mage’s trade mark pose when greeting people and of course when taking a commemorative photo. Stand along side Nyan-mage, copy his pose and call out ‘Nyan!’ to ensure you get the best shot.

Belly

Belly

Apparently much slimmer in his youth, Nyan-mage has grown chubby with age. “What a cute belly!” is a cry often heard.

Where can you find Nyan-mage?

Among the Edo townspeople you might hear the complaint that the lazy Nyan-mage always knocks off work early. While he doesn’t mean any harm Nyan-mage has recently been feeling under the weather, which means that regular rest is called for. While notoriously elusive, there are a few spots where you can usually spot this cute character so if you really want to meet up with Nyan-mage you should ask one of the nearby Edo townspeople.
