Japan- land of quirks and oddities. I LOVE the place! It’s my number 1 destination, and later this year, I’m taking Roam on a quirky kid-adventure hunting trip.
Japan is such a land of contradictions. Busy bustling cities, crowded trains, and adult smokers galore, contrasted with white-gloved passenger-traffic managers, the practice of leaving your modesty behind and going nude with new ‘friends’ (read: strangers!) in an outdoor hot spring, and quirky Harajuku hipsters and funksters in the best outfits in the world.
Did I mention the food? Octopus balls are top of the menu, pounded rice mochi balls filled with sweet red bean a favourite dessert, and a traditional home-style Japanese curry… one of life’s real treats.
Feel like jumping on a plane there now? Me too.
Happily, if Japan is beyond your family budget this year, perhaps you’d like to send your stuffed animal on a trip of a lifetime instead? Unagi Travel can help.
Imagine the look on the kid’s faces when they see their beloved toy on tour with a bunch of other cuddly friends from around the globe? Could be worth the investment just to see that.
Starting at an affordable $35, and ranging in price up to $55 for the Kamakura and Onsen trips, simply book and pay for a tour via paypal, then send your treasured friend (weighing less than 250 grams) via post to the Unagi Travel headquarters. Be sure to have them arrive in time for the tour start date.
They might even meet the locals!
Your stuffed animal friend will send you a handwritten postcard from Tokyo, and will return with a printed commemorative photograph as well as a CD-ROM filled to the brim with touristy snaps for you to see.
Here’s a 30 second sneak peek to avert potential homesickness!
Can you believe this is even possible? Teddy Bear Picnics have gone global. (And doesn’t someone have the coolest job in the world?)
