It represents the city of Tsubame's kokutai (national identity / national character).

Cactus Plant PapercraftI would have rather opted for an anime or video game related papercraft from Chokipeta but there is none at the moment, so enjoy these cactus plant papercrafts that he did for Canon Creative Park (Japan).

They come in various size and shapes - from small and round to tall and columnar. They are often used as ornamental plants.
