Lawson has a promotion on at the moment giving away free packets of Rilakkuma bath salts when you buy some candy. Rilakkuma was created by San-x 5 years ago in 2003, and supposedly was created with the idea of getting Japanese office workers to relax more. The bath salt connection would certainly seem to fit in to that idea. Here are the bath salt package designs. As always with Japanese characters, very cute.
For those who want to get to know Rilakkuma better and stay with him and friends, Royal Park Hotel have a Rilakkuma themed room you can stay in. There is a great article about this at CScout
and here is the pack of candy I bought
As the tag line says “Everyday life with those things you like“
and for good measure here is the pack of
Potato Chips, I mean Rice Chips that I bought. This is a new product out and the taste wasnt bad, but the look of the chips might need a little more work.
