Opening Rilakkuma, Hello Kitty, and Gudetama Re-Ment Boxes!

When I visited my family near Portland this past holiday, I was introduced to the wonders of the Japanese supermarket chain Uwajimaya. It’s pretty much heaven on earth! (Well, outside of actual supermarkets in Japan) In addition to everything you’d expect to find in a Japanese supermarket, the Beaverton location also had a small Kinokuniya bookstore inside, and it was packed full of manga, magazines, Studio Ghibli goodies, stationery, and piles of anime blind boxes. I wish we had Uwajimaya in Brisbane!

Since I had a limited budget and luggage space, I refrained from buying everything in the store, but I did pick up three Re-Ment boxes featuring some of my favorite characters. I held off opening them until now… But I couldn’t wait any longer! Watch my unboxing to see what I got:

If you’re interested in grabbing any of these, the Re-Ment sets are called Hello Kitty Cat Cafe, Rilakkuma Honey Sweets (Hachimitsu Tororon), and Gudetama Cafe. The full Gudetama set is available on Amazon, and they also have singles of Rilakkuma Honey Sweets and Hello Kitty Cat Cafe. If you end up grabbing any, I would love to hear what you got!

About Anne Lee

Also known as apricotsushi. Anne can be written with the kanji for apricot (杏), and sushi was the most quintessentially Japanese thing I could think of when I was 13, resulting in my goofy, albeit memorable, nickname.
