How cute is the new Parcoala? It's the new little Koala mascot for Japanese store Parco. Click here to pat the Koala and change the pattern on his ears.

Also fun is the Parco CANpaign seen over at Shibuya 246 where customers had the chance to win some cute merchandise in a can. Oh, branding and advertising in Japan is the best! Where else can you get away with using five different fonts on the one layout?!

If you are heading over to Tokyo don't miss Parco Shibuya department store. And if you like books - you won't want to miss Libro Books which is on B1F level of Shibuya Parco Part 1. It's my second favourite bookshop in Tokyo after Nadiff. Eeep I can't wait to go to Tokyo next month.

Hope you are all having a wonderful start to 2010! It's going to be a wonderful year!
