Yup! You heard it right!!! My #1 purchase of the year has to be my new pet marimo!!! (he's an algae ball)
For those of you who haven't caught up to speed - Marimokkori is THE mascot of Hokkaido. click here for my previous posting on this genki algae ball with a bulge in his mossy pants
So yeah... Since Marimokkori is such a huge hit in Hokkaido they decided to bottle up the real deal and sell them as phone/key charms!!! ingenious!!!!!
It's the best $3 I've ever spent.
