Traveling around Japan requires money, energy, and days off work. If you can’t afford to spare those things, maybe sending a beloved stuffed bear in your stead is the next best thing?
That’s the theory behind Unagi Travel, a tour agency for stuffed animals. For $35 to $55 a pop, your plush toy can visit Japanese hot springs, temples, and beaches. You’ll have to fund their trip to Japan, but Unaqi takes care of the return voyage. Your buddy will also receive a commemorative DVD filled with travel photos.
Already, 200 stuffed animals have “participated,” and the agency is gearing up for trips to Tokyo and a “mystery” destination. It just shared a photo of new arrivals today.
