Unicorn Beetle Sumo Competition, Nakayama Town, Yamagata Pref.

18th July, 2016 | Nakayama Town, Yamagata Pref.
Japan, as a nation, has kind of an obsession with the beetle. It’s true – from real-life beetle sumo wrestling to all sorts of media appearance, beetles play an small but significant role in Japanese culture.
The Japanese equivalent of man’s best friend? Not quite, but they’re definitely pretty important.   (*reference: Tofugu)
