A large painting featuring popular black bear mascot Kumamon from the southwestern prefecture of Kumamoto and scenery of the prefecture with Mount Aso in the background is seen on the wall of a bathroom at the Daikokuyu public bath in Tokyo's Sumida Ward on Feb. 6, 2019. A special event held in collaboration with the Kumamoto Prefectural Government to promote tourism started at the facility on the day, which is the "Day of Furo (bath)." The bath house is decorated with many Kumamon illustrations and is selling milk produced in Kumamoto during the event. The promotion can be enjoyed until March 4. The facility is closed on Tuesdays.
