Tokyo Travel Guide

In what is probably the most novel idea to hit the travel industry, and certainly going against all traditions, the Unagi Travel company is offering a tour of Tokyo complete with photo opportunities at the city's most memorable landmarks all for a low, low price. The catch is that the company only accepts stuffed animals.

Japan hosts one of the most unusual travel agencies in the world, with the Unagi Travel company having only one kind of clients: stuffed animals.

Entrepreneur and toy travel agent Sonoe Azuma takes stuffed animals to various highlights and then posts photos and text in real-time on her Facebook page for $20 to $50 per trip.

During a recent package tour, the 38-year-old entrepreneur took her clients – a small toy dragon, frog and mouse, mailed in by owners from the United States and Japan – to Tokyo’s popular Asakusa Kannon temple, according to the international press.
