KK with Kanji

I snagged this little bit of Japanese Kawaii Culture....

Part of a comment that the historian Stephen Turnbull made about his being a consultant for an upcoming film about the 47 Ronin:

In the souvenir shop of the shrine of the Forty-Seven Ronin in the town of Banshu-Ako in Japan you can buy a towel
with a depiction of every one of them in the guise of Hello Kitty.

Definitely it was one of those coffee hits the keyboard and monitor moments.
