Who is ko-Rilakkuma?

Who is ko-Rilakkuma? S/he is a little white baby bear who appeared out of nowhere

Rilakkuma is a character like Hello Kitty and the San Rio animals. His name is a contraction of “relax” and the Japanese word for bear. He and all his friends have a back story, personality, and a mountain of themed merchandise.

This was the upholstery on the chairs on the bus I rode to work. Isn’t it disgustingly cute? I love it! This is why I love Japan!

日本語

リラックマはキティちゃんや他のSANRIOのキャラクターみたいに、過去や性格のあるかわいい熊です。日本人なら知っているはずですが、英語のリ「ラクス」と日本語の「熊」の略した名前です。

今朝の通勤するバスの席がみんなこうリラックマの話でいっぱいでした。ヤンナルぐらいかわいいほど、こう言う日本がダイスキです!
