Japanese Travel Agency For…Stuffies?

This is so far out that it's hard to comprehend. But then again it's JAPAN- so it makes complete sense. Cuteporter Marissa S. sent this to us with the PS, "They've done it again." I think that's going to be the new tag for these types of posts.

The company is called Unagi Travel.

According to this article by Gadling.com, "(This allows) their owners to live vicariously through them. In fact, many of Unagi Travel's customers are physically impaired. Well, and photos of traveling stuffed animals are cute."

Can't argue with that. Here's their Facebook page.

There's also a pretty good tocks-shot in there, as well as one of my cats Mr. Pants and Oscar J. Computer hoping to murder this squirrel, and the squirrel who is completely unfazed."
