INSIDE: Roam the Gnome’s Guide to Unagi Travel Agency (the Stuffed Animal travel blog) for Teddy Bears 

Japan, the land of quirks and oddities.

I LOVE the place!

It’s my number 1 destination.

We love to visit cute crafty shops like Parco and Tokyu Hands, bustle on down to the Kamakura Buddha statue, and relish the peace in a steaming hot onsen bath too!

Roam the Gnome loves Japan, and your teddy bear will too.

Can’t make it in person? Send your stuffed animal on a trip in your place.

If Japan is beyond your family budget this year, perhaps you’d like to send your stuffed animal on a trip of a lifetime instead?

Unagi Travel can  help your teddy to see the best of Japan. 
Busy bustling cities, crowded trains, and adult smokers galore, contrasted with white-gloved passenger-traffic managers, the practice of leaving your modesty behind and going nude with new ‘friends’ (read: strangers!) in an outdoor hot spring, and quirky Harajuku hipsters and funksters in the best outfits in the world.

Did I mention the food? Octopus balls are top of the menu, pounded rice mochi balls filled with sweet red bean a favourite dessert, and a traditional home-style Japanese curry… one of life’s real treats.

Imagine the look on the kid’s faces when they see their beloved toy on tour with a bunch of other cuddly friends from around the globe?

Could be worth the investment just to see that.

Feel like jumping on a plane there now? Me too.
