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.© Japan Today
