In Amanohashidate&Miyazu area, you will see "Kasabou(かさぼう)" He is an elf of pine corn.
In the Kasamatu park(傘松公園), there are sweets with shape of Kasabou and you can buy some souvenier of Kasabou. Some weekends and holiday season, you can meet him at the Kasamatsu Park.
There are some stone statue of him as well. I don't have a picture but when you use chair-lift to go up to the park, you will see very little cute one!(I personally think ;))
