I guess most of you know the Japanese company San-X . They produce many cute mascots and one of their most popular character is the bear Rilakkuma but I think that there are many other cute characters such as Kutsushita Nyanko or the Mamegoma seals. While I was in Japan I bought some Kutsushita Nyanko notebooks although at that time I didn’t know its name nor that is was a San-X character.. So when we accidentally stumbled over the “Neo Tokyo Shop” in Berlin and caught sight of Kutsushita Nyanko tupperware in their vitrine I was really surprised! Of course they have some Rilakkuma things too but I’ve never been a fan of this lazy bear so I decided to add some cute Kutsushita Nyanko gadgets to my collection.
まめゴマare small seals who love eating Edamame and playing in the water. They usually are small enough to live in a goldfish bowl.
Rilakkuma リラックマ ,is a composition of the Japanese pronunciation of relax and the Japanese word for bear. “His favorite foods are dango, pancakes, omurice and custard pudding. True to his name, he enjoys relaxing and his favorite things include sleeping, lying around, watching television, listening to music and soaking in hot springs.” source: wikipedia
