Relax bear


Japan’s favourite laid-back bear, Rilakkuma, has been uncharacteristically busy lately.

Recently the popular character teamed up with chocolate company Tirol to make Strawberry Shortcake and Strawberry Milk Daifuku (red bean mochi) chocolates (above). And last summer, to celebrate his 5th anniversary, Royal Park Hotels created a Rilakkuma-themed hotel room. In Tokyo, it cost about ¥40,000 a night (A$537). But it did include breakfast (below).
