今回はオリンピックのマスコットについてです。

 

Kate: What do you know about the Olympic mascot.

Hanako: There are two mascots, MIRAITOWA and SOMEITY.

MIRAITOWA is the mascot for Tokyo 2020 Olympic and SOMEITY for Paralympic Games.

Kate:  Can you tell me more about it?

Hanako: Sure.  MIRAITOWA is two Japanese words connected together, ‘mirai” which means ‘future’ and ‘towa’ which means ‘eternity’.  It has the same indigo blue ichimatsu pattern on its head and body.  Oh, it also has a special ability, that is, to be able to move anywhere instantly.

Kate: Wow!!
