The Japanese company offering the holiday of a lifetime-for your teddy bear

Is your teddy bear or doll constantly asking for a vacation that you just don't have the time or money for? Then Unagi Travel just might be the thing for you.

The company runs a service that offers to take your teddy bear, doll or other toy on holiday for you-showing them all the sights of Japan. At a cost of between $36 and $446 the company's owner Sonoe Azuma will take your toy on excursions to the temples and shrines of Kamakura, the ancient capital south of Tokyo and even out for a meal and a hot spring bath. The owners will then receive video clips and photographs from the toys trip.

Azuma has said that around 90% of his clients are Japanese-but he is getting more and more interest from overseas. He hopes that the service will provide a way for people who can't afford or are unable to travel to learn more about Japan.
