present for you!

That's the first thing you see upon arriving at Haro's Cute Hamster From Japan page: a fluffy hamster holding a lotus with the words "present for you!"

Hamsters, small, adorable and busy, must make ideal pets for the typical Japanese home, which is often stressed for space. The 6-year run of the anime series Hamtaro from 2000 to 2006 also launched the popularity of the hamster as pet. "Little hamsters, big adventures," the Hamtaro site promises, and who wouldn't like to give their pet its own fantasy life online?

Haro's site is a lovable example of that impulse. Did you find the secret page? Could you solve it? Not me!
