Rilakkuma official goods shop re-opens at Tokyo Station

By Natsuko Ichiryu

Happy life with Rilakkuma, a shop selling official merchandise of the popular bear, re-opened in "character street" inside Tokyo Station on Friday. Rilakkuma is a bear created by San-X in 2003. He is popular among both Japanese children and adults. Approximately 3,000 items are on sale in the store.

Beside the Rilakkuma official shop is a store dedicated to another "kawaii" (cute) character -- Kapibara-san (modeled after a capybara). The stores are open from 10 a.m. until 8:30 p.m.

Fantastic news. The Fukushima problem will surely be a thing of the past now this shop is open.

So what? Now all companies have to sacrifice their business plans and profits because of Tepco's mismanagement of the crisis?
