Here are a couple of oddities we came across recently: Bar Dick an American Hideaway on Kokusai Dori in Naha in Okinawa and Fucky a character at Sakazuki Art Museum in Ichinokura near Tajimi.
Fucky is rendered in English from the kanji characters for Lucky Devil (福鬼). Oni can also be read as "ki." Thus "fuku" plus "ki" = fucky.
Fucky's motto is "You look like a million dollars."
