About This Blog
Relax Kuma is the unofficial fan website of Rilakkuma (Relax Bear). Rilakkuma is a Japanese character produced by the San-X company who debuted in 2003. Many people think Rilakkuma is cute because of his cute looks. But I think the charm of Rilakkuma lies not only in his cute looks but also in his personality. His way of talking, his attitude, and his hobbies can express his special personality. Some of the things are originally from Japan so many people who don’t understand Japanese won’t fully understand his personality. There isn’t a lot of information about Rilakkuma in English, so that’s why I decided to introduce Rilakkuma in English, even though my English is so bad. I hope that many people can get to know his charm and like him even more!

I am a Japanese woman who has lived in Taiwan for four years. In Taiwan, I worked for Japanese video game company for one year. Through my life in Taiwan, I realized there are many non-Japanese people who like Japanese pop culture like manga, games and characters. Some of them learn Japanese because they want to understand Japanese pop culture more. This situation made me start to introduce more things about Japanese culture in English. First I’ll start by introducing my favorite character, Rilakkuma. Someday, I want to introduce even more things about Japanese pop culture in my broken English!
