Bears like Rilakkuma have always been beloved for their round, cute features. From their full moon ears to their soft fluffy fur, what’s not to love about these sleepy creatures? So it’s not surprising that some of the most famous cute characters in Japan are kawaii bears. While bear mascots like Kumamon and Arukuma are a dime a dozen, one adorable bear has stolen our hearts: Rilakkuma!
We all know about Japan’s most legendary animation studio – Studio Ghibli through its classical works, like Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, or Princess Mononoke. But there are still tons of hidden gems…
There’s no doubt that Japan is famous for having a lot of kawaii and special mascots, like Kumamon and Funassyi. In Japan, a mascot can be a symbol of some spiritual thing, a prefecture, a company, or even events, like the Tokyo 2020 Olympics mascots.
If you are a big fan of the Kawaii culture of Japan, you must have seen the image of a chubby cute black bear named Kumamon.
Japanese mascots are super popular around the country and are a unique part of Japanese culture. They’re called yuru-kyara (meaning loose or relaxed character) or gotochi-kyara (local government character).
