I wonder how frightened the mascot would be if I ran up to hug it. I just have to hug mascots when I see them! Which is far better than the folks who have the urge to beat up or remove the heads of mascots. Your dinner sounds like a good deal, I will have to remember Lonely Planet. I tend to use Yelp but I am not sure if that covers places that are in Japan. I should check.
I am terrified of anything with its head covered in costume so I didn't go near it. Also with this guy, I think he had a few minders because he was being filmed.I usualy use wikitravel when I'm travelling but their eating recommendations can be crap because it's only the English speaking places in town. Actually, for eating, I usually use the walk around until I find somewhere method, but it was hard in Hagi because I couldn't find much near my hotel.
That mascot is a pretty good one, I mean, he's no Kumamon, but you know... That dinner sounds amazing, I love when you get tasters of a few sakes, I never know which one is good otherwise. Your recaps have definitely got me thinking about visiting that area.
