Can’t visit Japan? Send your stuffed toy!
For one reason or the other, you are longing to but cannot visit Japan? Do not worry, send your teddy or whichever is your favourite stuffed companion and the most-precious to you. It will do the sightseeing for you and come back with pictures and videos.
Owner of Tokyo-based Unagi Travel, Sonoe Azuma escorts clients’ teddy bears, dolls and other assorted stuffed toys on excursions to some of the most famous sights in Japan before sending video clips and photos of the toys back to their owners. “I wanted to provide holidays for people who cannot physically travel themselves, because they are hospitalised, they are too busy or don’t have enough money for a trip”, Azuma was quoted as saying.
