The 25th Japan Teddy Bear Convention

For fans of furry friends and stuffed pals, or perhaps just those looking for an unusual way to spend the weekend … the Japan Teddy Bear Convention awaits! Organized by the Japan Teddy Bear Association, the annual event attracts bear enthusiasts and “bear artists” from across the country. A charity raffle will take place to raise funds for children’s hospitals and there will be more chances to win some cuddly goodies in a lottery. Numerous contests will be taking place, including a 25th Anniversary Master Class of previous convention contest winners. Despite all these attractions, the main appeal is simply the chance to admire thousands of bears (and other animal friends) dressed up in their finest outfits, or keeping it plain bare…

You can find out more information all about the convention on their English website.
