A controversial flyer featuring an anime character with accentuated breasts has landed a small city tourism agency in hot water, with calls it is tantamount to sexual harassment.

At the center of the furor is the flyer put out by the tourism office in the Gifu city of Minokamo depicting Kocho Yoshida, a fictional teenage girl with a buxom figure.

The promotion, which caused a ruckus on Twitter over the weekend, is being used in a drive to attract anime fans from across the nation.
