For KAWS:Holiday Japan, KAWS is inviting folks to camp out with a giant inflated Companion and enjoy a beautiful view of the iconic Mount Fuji. The fourth KAWS:Holiday event—following Seoul, Taipei and Hong Kong—takes place at the Fumotoparra campground starting with the Ceremonial Camp Day (7.18) open only to raffle winners and continuing through 7.24 with six ‘public camp’ days. The raffle for tickets that include a tent/vehicle space for the Ceremonial Camp Day starts on Thursday (6.27) at 6 PM PDT and runs for 24 hours.
While you might not be able to go on Holiday with Companion, you can take home some vicarious souvenirs. As with the previous Holiday events, KAWS has collaborated with All Rights Reversed on an extensive KAWS:Holiday Japan collection of limited-edition goods. In honor of the iconic landmark, KAWS has created a fun Mount Fuji character featured on many of the items including totes, tees, cushions, pins and a cute plush toy.
The collection features three new toys including the 8″ Mount Fuji Plush (HK$1415 /$181) in Pink, Blue and Grey (Japan only), a 9.5″ KAWS:Holiday Japan vinyl toy—featuring the Companion in the restful Holiday Japan pose— in Brown, Gray and Black (HK$1565/$200), and a limited Kokeshi Doll Set (HK$5890/$754) featuring three Companion versions of the traditional Japanese wood toy.
The Kaws:Holiday Japan collectibles will be available on July 17th at 6 PM PDT from the Ding Dong Takuhaibin online store.
