Shibuya’s new mascot loves to water flowers and put on make-up

From the Japan Times:

the fairy lives in Yoyogi Park and its hobby is to water flowers and put on makeup.

I love how in Japan, or at least Shibuya, putting on makeup qualifies as a hobby! The name Airissun combines the meanings of “love” and “iris” while also drawing on the sound of the English word “listen.”
