Today’s lovely find came from the lolly aisle at the supermarket. This is Rilakkuma’s friend Korilakkuma. They are the relaxing bears and enjoy all pass times that are relaxing 🙂

The box held a cute little Korilakkuma to hang on my bag and some lollies. There are three other bears to collect and together they are the owners and customers of a coffee shop.

I’m hoping to learn a bit more about kawaii culture in Japan. It looks like a number of sociological essays and books have been written on the topic. I especially want to read a translation of Tomoyuki Sugiyama’s “cool Japan” to try and gain a better understanding of cute culture. I might not understand it yet, but I certainly like it!
