Haruka Ayase takes over the famous Glico signboard in Osaka for a limited time.
The ‘Glico signboard’, located in Dotonbori, Osaka, is currently undergoing a renewal. A special signboard recently went up featuring actress Haruka Ayase raising her arms as she finishes a race instead of the iconic Glico running man. Since the signboard was first installed in 1935, it has featured a runner finishing a race. The current one represents the 5th generation signboard and it has been used for 16 years. It was taken down on August 17 in preparation for the 6th generation signboard which will be revealed this fall.
