City of Yokohama, Fire Bureau mascot character Hamakun


Hama-kun was born in 1974 with the aim of becoming a fire mascot loved by Yokohama citizens. It was named "Hama-kun" from "Hama" in Yokohama. We regularly play an active part in various events, including posters and flyers, to make "firefighting" more accessible and familiar to citizens.

  • Birthday: March 22, 1974
  • Educational background: Dock School of International graduate
  • Special skill: Kendo (3 steps), Judo (2 steps), Ski (instructor), Swimming (National Athletic Meet)

About illustrations

Hama-kun's illustration was devised by a staff member of our Fire Bureau's fact that they are familiar with citizens using character dogs in fire prevention awareness projects and posters for children in the United States. The wish is that dogs are widely and deeply integrated into human life, and that the agility, wisdom, vitality, and loyalty of the dog are superimposed on the image of firefighting, and that the citizens have a sense of intimacy.
It was reborn as the current illustration in 2008.
