For anyone living in Japan Rilakkuma リラックマ is very abundant and excessively popular. His name derives from the English work ‘relax’ and the Japanese word for bear (kuma), so ‘relax bear’.

He is one of my favorites since there is a rumor that he is in fact an ojiisan (middle aged man) in a bear suit. Based upon the fact that slightly below the back if his neck is a zipper that runs down his back. He kinda has the personality of an old guy too and enjoys lying around, eating sleeping and watching TV. Because of all this he is surprisingly popular with older men!

Anyhow a couple days I walked into a conbini (convenience store) to buy my regular green tea and noticed it had a little package on top!

The current promotion includes this cute little sock with the tea that you can use to cover your bottle so that in the summer. The condensation that typically forms outside of the bottle is absorbed so it doesn’t not wet things in your bag!

There a 5 types to collect, drinkymashou!

This Is Why I Love Summer Vacation!

So I was quite ecstatic when the coach of the track and field club (who I have been training with everyday) finally asked me to go swimming with the students this morning. The school pool has sat tantalizingly cool and refreshing across from my desk but realistically a world away up until now!
Anyhow I just finished up spending the last 90minutes swimming with my kids, playing games and whatnot. Now with what feels like retinal chemical burns, it’s painfully clear why the boys laughed at me when I said I didn’t need goggles…… Shouganai live and learn ^^;
