Cute Characters, Look What I've Got!

Fuku Fuku Nyanko

Posted on July 29, 2016 by


One of my favourite shops to visit in Japan is Passport, which sells lots of super kawaii homewares. Over the years I’ve bought an onigiri rice ball pillow, an adorable bunny bowl and lots of little plushies. This time they had a big display of cute cats called Fuku Fuku Nyanko. Fuku fuku means good luck or happiness and that’s definitely how I was feeling about discovering them!

I spent so long trying to decide which pillow to get and eventually chose the white version of these. It’s made of memory foam so nice and squishy and great for the flight home. I especially love his floppy paws and tail.

I also picked up a colourful hand towel for my bathroom featuring all three kitties – Hacchi, Chachamaru and Michelangelo.

There are loads more Fuku Fuku Nyanko products on the Passport web shop including plushies, pouches, rugs and stools! How amazing would one of these clocks look in the kitchen?

Passport only ship within Japan and Fuku Fuku Nyanko don’t seem to be turning up on eBay or other sites yet. They do also have a Rakuten store so you could use a shopping service to order and ship to you. Otherwise, if you’re visiting Japan, there’s a store in Ikebukuro’s Sunshine City mall and more across Japan.

Pusheen Coin Purse

As a Pusheen fanatic I had to scoop up this cute coin purse as soon as I saw it. It is made from super soft material, holds the right amount of cash, or even a lip gloss, and people will gush when you pull it out. Pusheen’s tail acts as a zipper pull to zip in and out to load and unload stash. You can carry Pusheen in your pocket or purse any day of the week.

It’s available from Hot Topic and Amazon.
