There’s an incredibly adorable bus stop located in Takaharu, a town in Kyushu, that is a symbol of love from a pair of Japanese grandparents for their grandchildren.
And no, this is not just a regular bus stop.
One for the grandchildren
According to Japanese website Miyazaki
, the bus stop’s cute factor is the Japanese cartoon character Totoro.
The bus stop, inspired by a scene from the popular animated film 'My Neighbor Totoro', was reportedly built by an elderly Japanese couple for their grandchildren as a surprise.
Can everybody say 'awwwww'?
And here's the cool bit: the elderly couple reportedly took just one day to build the entire bus stop.
The grandparents reportedly even made the Totoro statue from scratch using a traditional plastering technique:
Judging by the photos of the completed bus stop, it's evident that their granddaughter loved the Totoro bus stop:
It seems that fans of Totoro and Ghibli super loved the bus stop as well, as tourists have reportedly been flocking to the small town just to take a picture with Totoro:
BRB, need to buy plane tickets and fly to Japan to give Totoro a hug too. ♡
