Rabbit Railway

Boy, those trains in Seiyo, Ehime Prefecture Japan better hop to it! The railway station in Seiyo has appointed Tsubasa as its stationmaster in a bid to attract more tourism to the area. According to the station official, "I hope we can promote our town so that it will make a big leap this year, like Tusbasa.

The 8 month old bunny received his offiicial hat yesterday at a ceremony. Stationmaster Tsubasa looks like he could use a hat with bigger holes for those ears . . . better to hear those trains coming down the track.
