Kapibarasan 10th Anniversary


Have you ever seen a Capybara? It’s the largest rodent in the world and I wouldn’t mind petting one. Kapibarasan -a Japanese cute character based on the capybara- will be turning 10 this year, so it’s time to celebrate!

Kapibarasan - Art Fes

Starting today a special exhibition will be held at the Isetan Department Store (2F) in Shinjuku, Tokyo. Fourteen artists have made their own interpretation of Kapibara-san for the Design Art Fes. And you can also find new merchandise (plushies and mascots <3) at the store. I'd love to attend the exhibition, but since Japan is not exactly around the corner I've scoured the internet for a couple of the featured illustrations. Kapibarasan - Art Fes

An impression of what the exhibition will look like.

Kapibarasan - Art Fes Yurie Sekiya

Yurie Sekya’s has somehow managed to make Kabirasan even cuter with her entry!

Kapibarasan - Art Fes Wisut Ponnimit

Wisut Ponnimit is a manga and animation artist from Thailand. I had not heard of Wisut before, but really like her style.

Kapibarasan - Art Fes Mori Chack

Gloomy Bear (by Mori Chack) is on a demolition tour again and uses Bunny Hanyo to tie up a stash of Kapibarasans Grin.

Kapibarasan - Plush

I haven’t listed the special anniversary items here, but you can find them at the official website. One of the newest plushes that I might need in my life is this Capybara with keyboard that you can use as an armrest. I wonder how comfortable it will be IRL, since I clearly remember how hard it is to work with Cato on my lap while reaching for the keyboard… But you can detach Kapibarasan from the armrest, which would be great for a quick nap behind your desk as well ;) If anyone knows where to get this plush please do share it in the comments and you’ll be my friend forever.


Decorate your desktop with cute anniversary wallpaper or read the backstory on the Kapibarasan website.

My Kawaii Washi Tape Collection

Remember a post from last month about my new (DIY) washi tape holder? I’d ordered a couple of extra tapes and would like to share some of the cutest with you:

Cute Washi Tape - Sanrio Twin Stars

This Little Twin Stars tape has quickly made its way to become my favorite washi. The pastel colors and graphics are great, they don’t look washed out and the tape sticks well.

Cute Washi Tape - Mt Sakura

MT Sakura washi, how could I resist….

Cute Washi Tape Package

All of the tapes shown here come from Sweet Supplies Store and I was very pleased with the transaction. Shop owner Eriko updated me about the package and she decorated it so nicely! Look at those stamps <3 Cute Washi Tape - Rainbow

I love the simplicity of the rainbow tape from Shinzi Katoh.

Cute Washi Tape - Flamingo

I don’t know how I was able to live without this flamingo washi tape so far. If it was bigger I would surely have decorated the backyard with it, which I’ve been redecorating. More about that later ^_^

Cute Washi Tape Holder

This is what the tape holder looks like now, I’m quite happy with it. I’ve also added a couple of tapes from Washi Wednesday, but I have to say that this seller didn’t pay that much attention to the package (they came in a padded envelope without additional wrapping). So I’ll probably order again from Sweet Supplies Store in the future.
