February Pack Review

February Pack Review

February flew by, don’t you think?

On 5th February we celebrated the Lunar New Year. We decorated the ZenPop office with chinese lanterns, which looked so beautiful.

February is usually the coldest month in Japan, with average temperatures of -4°C in Hokkaido. Brrr! Luna-chan visited the famous Sapporo Snow Festival (さっぽろ雪まつり, Sapporo Yuki Matsuri) to enjoy the giant snow sculptures!

We hope our February packs warmed your hearts, as well as your tummies!

STATIONERY - Hedgehog Garden

Japan has so many items with cute animals, but we decided to honor hedgehogs this month as it will soon be spring, the time for hedgehogs to come out of their winter sleep. In Japanese, hedgehogs are called harinezumi (hari = needle, nezumi = rodent), so many companies nickname their hedgehog characters Harry!

Luna-chan and the ZenPop team visited Harry Wood Cafe in Namba, Osaka to meet Coconut-kun the Hedgehog. Read our blog post or check out our kawaii video on Instagram.
