Welcome Tanuki Back to Tokyo is a project of S.C.R.O.T.U.M. We aim to promote inter-species love, generosity, and magic by making Tokyo hospitable again for this mythic and real animal. Tanuki’s scrotal sack transforms into countless urban, agricultural, and communal tools. Learn more about Let’s Welcome Tanuki Back to Tokyo in This Big City blog, co-written with Chris Berthelsen and Jessica Mantell. Illustrations by Luis Mendo!
