The Japanese culture of ‘omotenashi’ meaning ‘heart of service’ is practised not only by the Japanese but also by their cute mascots!

A group of guests had a cute, first-hand experience of this kind of hospitality.

A video shot by tourists at a snow resort in the Shiga Highlands National Park in Japan’s Nagano shows their resident mascot ‘Okomin’ helping guests push their car that was stuck in the snow.

Okomin tried and tried and tried to push the car out of the snow but did not give up. Okomin gave its all in pushing the car but to no avail. Although the car didn't move an inch, everyone had fun.

We definitely gove him 100 points for his effort and cuteness!
