About Sumikkogurashi

Sumikko” means “corner” and “gurashi” means to gather. 
The Sumikkogurashi friends all love corners and would prefer to stay out of the center of rooms.

"What are Sumikkogurashi?
Seats on a train fill up starting from the corner seats. If you go to a cafe, it would be best to reserve seats in a corner.
How come we feel calm when we are in a corner?
A polar bear that doesn’t like the cold, an unconfident penguin, a leftover part of a tonkatsu, a shy cat, a “lizard” who hides their true identity--it may seem slightly depressing at first, but it makes them each unique.
If you like corners or you care about corners, 
won’t you be a friend of Sumikkogurashi?"

We are!! Are you??
