Rirakkuma Appearance

I'm finally getting to some of my backlogged photos. A few date all the way to July. Time to blow the dust off them.

Rirakkuma is a very popular character in Japan now, a bear (kuma) that prefers relaxing and eating snacks.  He was scheduled for an appearance at the toy store in the Tenmonkan shopping complex one Saturday, but he was just leaving when I arrived after work.  I caught him escaping through the gap between the two buildings.  Given the size of his head and the narrowness of the gap, it took him and his handler 2 minutes to go the 5 feet to the door in the back.
