What a cute little flying doggo.

The Japanese town of Oji in Nara, south of Japan has introduced a flying drone puppy as its official mascot.

Yukimaru, which is powered by a quadcopter, has debuted in a promotional video about the town, in which he buzzes serenely through its attractions such as the Daruma Temple, the Yamato River and Mount Myojin:

In the video, Yukimaru also passes the burial spot of its namesake: the pet dog of 7th century royal Prince Shtoku:

Yukimaru also chases after a jogger on the banks of the Yamato River:

In case you weren’t convinced Yukimaru is real, Oji posted a video featuring a close-up of its adorable drone:

Steven Universe fans may also see Yukimaru’s passing resemblance to Dogcopter, a fictional flying dog in the cartoon series. Yukimaru doesn’t poop flying missiles though:

Yukimaru is also making appearances as a costumed mascot around town now. This is from his official Facebook page.

Just look at how happy he is.
