Kagawa Prefecture will hold Yadon Paradise in Kagawa 2021 (ヤドンパラダイス ㏌ 香川 2021), a collaborative event that takes place in Kagawa Prefecture (Udon Prefecture), from August 10, 2021 which is Yadon Day, until February 28th, 2022. High resolution images and photos from the press release have been added to an Imageboard thread.

During this event, Yadon will appear at various events throughout the prefecture, and products featuring Yadon will be introduced in collaboration with products available in the prefecture. There will also be a photo contest where you can win original collaboration goods by posting Yadon related photos on Twitter. Please come to Kagawa with your friends and family to meet Yadon. Please note that the event will be held but precautions against coronavirus infections will be taken, but it may be cancelled depending on the infection situation.

About Udon Prefecture x Yadon

Yadon is a popular character in the Pokémon series. Udon and Yadon have a similar sound, and "Yadon's Sweet Tail (ヤドンのしっぽが甘い)" is a reference to the local specialties of Wasanbon (和三盆) and "rare sugar", and the legend that "it rains when Yadon yawns (ヤドンがあくびをすると雨が降る)" which is good for Kagawa Prefecture, which is suffering from water shortage. It is the perfect Pokémon to promote Kagawa Prefecture.

Kagawa Prefecture signed an "Agreement for Cooperation and Collaboration for Regional Revitalization" with The Pokémon Compay in 2008, appointing Yadon as the Udon PR team and strengthening its efforts to revitalize the region by promoting the attraction of visitors from Japan and abroad and the promotion of prefecture products.

Event #1 - Yadon is waiting for you at the airport exit! The Yadon Bus is here!

Prior to the collaboration event, the Yadon's Marugame Airport Limousine Bus was launched on July 2nd, 2021. Not only was the entire vehicle wrapped, but the interior aisles and seats were also designed with Yadon on them. Moreover, the vehicle number is 810 Yadon! The Yadon bus, which is both fun to look at and fun to ride, will connect Takamatsu Airport and JR Marugame Station.

Event #2 - Post on Twitter and get original collaboration goods! Yadon Photo Contest!

We will be holding a photo contest where you can post a photo of yourself with a stuffed Yadon or other goods on Twitter, and you will receive original Udon Prefecture x Yadon collaboration goods that can only be obtained through this event. 

If you post your photo with the designated hashtag, one winner in each category will receive the Grand Prize, and nine winners in each category will receive the Prize for Excellence.
