Our beloved Rilakkuma celebrates 15 years in 2018. What better way to celebrate his birthday than with a tea party that would make the Mad Hatter envy? And the best thing is that we are invited too, because from October to December Wonderland moves to Namjatown, in the middle of Tokyo.
Namjatown is a theme park located inside Sunshine City shopping centre in Ikebukuro. It is managed by Bandai and is the ideal place to visit if you go crazy for gyoza and desserts. The two main attractions are in fact many stands where you can make epic binge of dumplings, ice creams and pastries of all kinds. We were there ten years ago and we came out with at least a couple of pounds more.
The highlight of the Rilakkuma in Wonderland event at Namjatown is, of course, the cute and delicious dishes that are available to visitors, from the Mad Hatter-style omelette to the adorable cupcakes, not to mention fruit cocktails. In addition, it is possible to participate in a prize game that offers exclusive accessories, some of which are sold individually. You can also meet Rilakkuma in flesh and fur: he will meet his fans on three occasions (October 13rd, November 3rd and December 1st).
Rilakkuma in Wonderland collection is available right now in Japanese stores, with gadgets one prettier than the other. You can instead visit the Wonderland in Namjatown from October 12th to December 2nd.
