Snowboarding equipment company Burton will be releasing Doraemon snowboards for kids this September to commemorate the 80th birthday of Fujiko F. Fujio; one of the co-creators behind the cyborg futuristic cat. The “Doraemon After School Special” boards will have colourful designs on the front and back and will be available in three sizes; 80cm, 90cm and 100cm. Each board will cost 29,600 Yen ($296 USD).


While the kids are learning how to snowboard you can relax in a Prince Hotel room that is covered completely with Hello Kitty. A sofa, table, plushies, framed pictures and even pillows and bed sheets are contained within the 59 square meter suite located in the Minato Ward in Tokyo. If you want to check in for a night the Prince Hotel is discounting the room to those who book after the 18th of August, the room will cost 15,000 Yen ($150 USD) for one person per night.
