Arrival of 10th Anniversary Zodiac Series Rilakkuma Plushies!

Exciting news!

My 10th Anniversary Zodiac Series Rilakkumas came in today!

This was also my first time ordering from the San-X Net Shop. Even though Net Shop is almost entirely in Japanese, the whole process was surprisingly fast and easy – even for someone completely illiterate in Japanese like me.

Although images of this series have been out for months (one of my earliest blog posts, actually!), they were officially released just last week (1/19)!

This zodiac/astrology series is 12 plushies strong, and commemorates Rilakkuma’s 10 year anniversary! I only ordered 5 because I’m not made of money, but maybe I’ll collect the full set one day. Wow, San-X is sure doing it big this year for Rilakkuma’s 10th birthday!

Stay tuned for individual posts (and close-up photos) on each of them later this week!

ETA: If you’re curious about how to buy from Tenso, I wrote a guide!

    • Thanks! :)

      So you’re right: the San-X Net Shop doesn’t ship internationally themselves, but they do work closely with Tenso. Basically, Tenso gives you a Japanese address to mail to (their warehouse), and then Tenso deals with the international shipping stuff from there (maybe I’ll write a full post on this sometime haha).

      • Wow so cute!! I want to collect the whole set as well, they are all so special ^_^ you should definitely do a tense post! I would love to be able to buy from directly San-x too. I was iffy on whether tenso is reliable though. But seeing your san-x box makes me want to do a shopping spree lol…

      • Oh I see! I’ve heard of Tenso, they’re basically a shopping service right? Usually when I buy from Japanese sites that don’t ship internationally, I just ask a friend to do it for me >_<

      • Thank you so much for telling me. Then what I saw was a fake.

        How do I place order with your Japanese supplier? Did you paid 2220 yen for all the 5 Horoscope Rilas? Or I read it wrongly. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

        Thank you once again. Cheers!

        • No problem! So my supplier, in this case, was the San-X Net Shop itself – they’re the official San-X online store. I wrote a guide about how to order from them as an international customer here.

          I paid 2220 yen for the international EMS shipping for the 5 Rilas. On top of that, I paid retail for each of them (5 x 1575 yen), 500 yen for local shipping, and 490 yen for the Tenso international service fee. If that’s unclear, I elaborated on the cost more on the guide. Hope that helps!
