Tokyo Skytree Rilakkuma, Korilakkuma, and Kiiroitori plushie!

Hello again! I’m back in Florida!

Wow, I haven’t updated since I arrived to the Philippines! I said things would slow down on this front after my fast-paced Rilakkuma adventures in Japan, but it turns out that applied to my blogging (and internet connection) too haha. But now that I’m back in the states, I have some time to burn while I wait for med school to start (August 5)!

First up is Tokyo Skytree Rilakkuma, Korilakkuma, and Kiiroitori!

Tokyo Skytree Set - full

At 2080 ft., Tokyo Skytree is the tallest tower in the world! … which would make this Rilakkuma more than 1000 feet tall if scaled up to actual size!

Fun fact: this is actually my first Kiiroitori hahaha

Tokyo Skytree Set - Korilakkuma

Love that they still included all the details: Rilakkuma has a functioning zipper, and Korilakkuma has her signature red button, even though it is barely visible!

This particular set, with the bears hanging on to the tower all King Kong-like, came out December 2012! A different set with the 3 with Rilakkuma holding dango came out at the Skytree Rilakkuma Store’s grand opening on May 22, 2012 – super cute, too!

Anyway, over the next few days, I’m gonna try to photograph and catalog all the different plushies I picked up while in Japan while I try to get caught up on all the Rilakkuma news I’ve missed – for example omg hahaha that the new Rilakkuma Wonderland mini plushies’ tails are all different colors?

Also, dango-drummer Rilakkuma’s nose looks full and normal here?

And aahhh the super cute Rilakkuma x Tower Records collab?? I love Ariel’s and Angel’s photos! So jealous!

These musically inclined Rilakkumas dovetail quite nicely with the new Akiko Yano Rilakkuma collaboration song, リラックマのわたし (“The Rilakkuma that is me”)! The CD will be available at Tower Records on August 7!

PS a big OOOH to the close-ups of the Rilakkuma Wonderland float playset!

  3. YAY! You’re back! ^-^ Damn! That marching band playset looks so cute… :< And wow! Your first Kiiro?! You're missing out!!!! Good thing you've got more coming :D I wasn't a fan of him when I started out too, but I fell in love with him after seeing his golden/pudgy adorableness! He can brighten up any room! :D So excited about the Wonderland series!

  4. Welcome back! The Skytree plushie looks awesome! I never got mine cause I thought it would only be appropriate to get if I ever visit Skytree hehehe. Looking forward to your posts about everything you got in Japan, I am sure it will be awesome and kawaiiiii!

    • Thanks so much, I’m glad to be back! Yes, the Skytree plushie is definitely best as a souvenir :) and that actual tower is incredible! When you’re at the foot of it, you can barely see the top! Plus there were a few clouds out when we went, so it looked so much taller as it disappeared into the clouds :O

  5. Ooh I got the Skytree plushie when I visited too! It was also my first Kii *^^* I think its a great souvenir! I loved the Skytree shop, very beautiful and clean ~ we took Rilakkuma up into Skytree with us, so he made it into all of our pictures of the view! Haha =) can’t wait to see more of your pics!
