Japanese people walk around their house without shoes on. So they sometimes hit their pinky toe against the corner of a piece of furniture in the room.
Someone declared, "I want to change the pain to laughter when I hit my foot on the corner of furniture". So the judges and the craftsman decided to make it."

Original idea by Tsuyoshi Nagasawa and hand-crafted by Akio Kamei and Osamu Kasho.
