There are two things Japanese people love — celebrating the changing of the seasons, and Rilakkuma.

But why enjoy them separately when you can mix the two together? Well, the employees at Japanese department store Takashimaya in Kyoto get it — that’s why they will be having the Wa Rilakkuma Fair, a week and a half celebration of the four seasons in Japan, Rilakkuma style!

Wa is a word referring to all things Japan-related, and from April 27th to May 9th, the 7th floor of Takashimaya will be flooded with limited edition original Rilakkuma goods specially designed for this occasion. Every item represents one of the four seasons, so you can get Rilakkuma goods for each division of the year.

You can get adorable stuffed Rilakkuma dolls (or keychains) dressed in kimono
