Capybara Sweets House

Do you know what a capybara is?
A capybara is the largest living rodent in the world but its a lot cuter than a mouse [to me anyway]
They have heavy barrel shaped bodies with short tat sounds just like me haha

Anyway lately i been getting a little capybara obsessed…so when i saw the Capybara Sweets lottery, i had to join!!
What i got…

The nice thing about this lottery is that you get a free packet of bath salts with every lottery ticket you buy
There are 4 patterns to choose from but i only bought 2 lottery tickets XD

For those who havent read my blog before..lottery tickets are 500yen each and you are definetely going to win a prize [size of prize is hard to say but even the crappiest prize is fairly worthwhile]

What i won…
Prize E – Phone Strap

Prize F – Glass cup

Yup i won the two LAST PLACE prizes hahaha kinda like consolation prizes? But i didnt care, i was happy to get these!! as a matter of fact, i WANTED the phone strap and cup badly XD

So what is the first prize [which i didnt win]
its this soft toy
PHOTO from KUJI ad
Its 38cm in length [quite large] So cute yes?

Note the prizes for the lotteries are made specially for the lottery and are not available for sale elsewhere.

If you like the Capybara character from TRYWORKS, here is their website”>

Today’s entry is a little late and a little short XD If you are wondering why, its because i am aching all over today. It was a long weekend over here in Japan. The husband and i went Nikko to see the autumn leaves , waterfalls and temples. It was all very beautiful except to get to have to encounter a lot of stairs.
Yes endless amounts of stairs. And this is a fairly nice one already
A lot of them were a bit more “rustic” ie more steep, less nicely built.

My legs are like jelly today T-T My Back hurts too. I am soooo unfit.
I’ll share more photos of nikko once i am able to sit at the comp and edit pictures!

Till then, hope everyone is well
XOXO Yumeko

p.s to all Canadians reading this, Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

p.p.s here is a uber cute capybara video [from the same user who made the video Macnunu sent me on twitter]

Its an NG video as the Capybara keeps rushing towards the camera but i thought it was just sooo cute!

p.p.p.s i am often asked what my favourite chara goods are. A lot of ppl assume it is Hello Kitty. But to be honest, i dont have one particular favourite. I like a lot of different characters. I guess i just like cute things? What about you? What is your favourite?

    Capybara-san is probably my favourite! He’s just a blob and he’s so cute. I think I died reading this post.

  4. so thats what they are called!!! haha

  5. Dina (XYYan) says:

    This is the first time I heard about Capybara! Both of the prizes that you got are so cute, esp the charm 😀

  6. Sam says:

    That capybara is so cute! I’m glad I didn’t do those stairs at Nikko, I would be written off for days! Rest up- you’ve earned it.
    I am a Keroppi fan, but I also love Shinkansen and Domo. I have a giant Domo I had to lug home from Singapore, but definitely worth it.

    • Bittenbefore says:

      oh u are the first keroppi fan i know! and he’s REALLY cute!!
      domo used to be so big but now i hardly see him around sadly!!

  7. So so cute! I wish we had those lotteries here. =3= Aussie needs more cute charas for us to fawn overrrrr.

  10. elle says:

    Ahhhh I <3333 capybaras!! 😀 😀 I remember seeing that phone strap before…and that CUP is SO FREAKING CUTE! I love thin-walled glass cups!!! 🙂

    I bought a little capybara stuffed toy for my office while I was at the aquarium in Osaka… damn they are so cute. Thanks for the pics as always Yumeko 😀

  11. Sara Mari says:

    Very cute! I love this character and even if the strap and glass are last place prizes, they are very good prizes!

  12. Sheila says:

    OOOOH cute!! I’ve never seen that stuff here, but its cute and I’d totally buy it. Thank you for sharing!

    I’d totally go for the cup and strap too, lol.


  13. Tracy says:

    My sisters love Capybara! And one of them was lucky to win the biggest prize previously from the lottery in Hokkaido!
    I like the gift of a packet of bathsalt for every ticket bought!

  14. Nic says:

    I wish we have those raffle thingy here too….how come everything in japan are so cute…..I’m so gonna move there….

  15. Yinnie says:

    Oh wow. I’m jealous, why can’t our lottery give out cute stuff. =D

    Nikko looks so picturesque. =D


  16. ARES says:

    omg!! so cute!!

  17. Justine says:

    OMG I’ve had this page open for like 5 hours trying to think of a comment.

    The capybaras are so cute! I don’t really like rodents in general (esp. in real life) but capybaras are cute! I saw some at the zoo in San Diego. I actually think I prefer the little lottery prizes over the large plushies – they are So cute but they would just collect dust in my room!

    My favourite character is HK of course! I also like Cinamaroll and Fairy Twin Stars. 🙂

    OMG the Nikko stairs look killer – hope your legs recover fast!

  18. Catherine says:

    OMFG the capybara stuff is sooooooo cute! I love the cup especially and ahhhhh I so want that plush toy LOL – soooo cute!!! ^^;;;;;

    Sounds like your weekend trip was lovely except for the stairs! Hope you’re not too busy so you can relax and recover! ♥

  19. ~Lisa says:

    How adorable! I wish there were lotteries like that here!!! And the cup is reallly cute ^^

  20. sarah says:

    OMG! i soooo had a book about capybaras when i was younger… makes me want to go read it again. loveeeeeee capybaras. i have a similar body shape too ahahaha xD

  21. Natsumi says:

    Ohmygosh! SO cute! I love the cup a lot, it’s definitely a winner…
    …despite being a consolation prize XD

    Do you change phone straps or do you have a bulk? Just realized
    I’ve never really noticed whether you only have one or a bulk.

    Hope the soreness goes away! It’ll make you a little fitter!

  22. *Kat* says:

    Capybara is so cute! Your prizes were awesome, even if they were the two last place prizes. It’s nice that you even get a packet of bath salts with each loterry ticket that you purchase.

    Nikko looks so nice and peaceful. OMG! I think that I would have to stop very often going up all of those stairs.

    Take care of your jelly legs and any aches and pains.


  23. Nikki says:

    SUPER CUTE!!! YOU made me go AAAAWWW early Wednesday morning inside the office!

  24. Sam says:

    omg is THAT what they are??! XDDD
    I always saw a bunch of capybara stuff floating around on people’s blogs and in their rooms but I always assumed it was another cute japanese character of a blobby…….blob creature XDDD
    “They have heavy barrel shaped bodies with short legs” – if they like to snack and sleep lots, that’s pretty much me!! hahahahaaaa
    omggg, they’re so cute I want one as a pet!!!! X3 kyuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
    love the one who keeps running into the camera hahaha
    all the prizes look so cute – even the consolation prizes are great! If I was in Japan, totally would spend so much money on the capybara lottery tickets XD
    Did you have a nice little holiday though?

    ps. Thanks for the Thanksgiving wishes!!! X3

  25. Diane says:

    Aw! the capybara is the cutest thing ever! i think i have one stuffed toy at home!!!!!

  26. Calia Yang says:

    hmmm didn’t know what they were til you said what they were lol!!! thanks for sharing!

  27. miya says:

    I love Capybara-san. When I visited Japan last time, one of the UFO catcher machines I saw had HUGE Capybara-san plush toys. I thought about trying for one but decided against.

    The “squee” noise they make is so adorable. <3

    I hope you enjoyed your weekend in Nikko. 🙂

  28. ritzyroxie says:

    I’m new to this blog so hi! Oh that stuff is so cute! I like the things you won alot more than the plushie. Esp. that cup! I would put ice cream in it. *jealous*;)

  29. ThedaBara says:

    Ahahaha, capybaras-they are called “Chigüire” in my homeland(Venezuela) and they are very common in the plains. You can see them in herds running through the shallow rivers around there, and they are sometimes hunted for their meat{this isn’t as common anymore, but it is still done}
    I thought it was kind of fun that you like an animal from my country! they are very cute indeed-here’s a little blurb on chigüire’s in Venezuela:

    I hope your legs feel better Yumeko!!

    • Bittenbefore says:

  31. Connie says:

    I want one as a pet! I could set up a little pool for it, take it for a walks, let it play in the park… O______O

    Those lotto prizes are so cute, and honestly, I’d be happy with just the little bath salts they gave. I love that packaging!

  32. aww the Capybara is so cute haha. I wish we had lotto prizes like that in LA! looking forward to your scenic pics.
    I went running today and realized I am superrr out of shape!

  33. Vivian says:

    • Bittenbefore says:

      should be a wee bit cooler in november! ^^ maybe 23 – 24 degrees!

  34. madie says:

    ahhh, wish the lotto in the USA would give us consolation prize…

  35. May says:

  38. Autumn says:

    I love everything cute! make-up, charas, puppies, kittens, HK, everything! I am so girly I just want to show of my girlyness, so I am trying to make my appreance and such cute! It ‘s hard in the state I live in everyone likes to look Mature mature. But I loves the cuteness!

    • Bittenbefore says:

      where do you live? ^^
      i like all cute things too!!! we must like the same things!

      • Autumn says:

        I live in Washington state, but no where near Seattle. To be honest I have never even been to Seattle. It’s terrible I know ^,^;. But the traffic is sooo bad there. I used to have a capybara we call them guinea pigs here, but he passed on, I also had some hamsters, but with small animals their life spans aren’t very long. But they are soo cute! I am amazed at some of the cute make-ups you have in Japan! And I must admit…I love plushys. When I don’t feel good I love to have one to snuggle up with. I so wanted to do a hello kitty inspired decoden of my phone but that all has to wait. Stupid I hope to read more of your posts. Japan looks so pretty. I hope to see if you have any posts about clothing, I am sure your clothes are super cute! I have this shirt I love it has a shiny crown on it. I hope to hear form you again! I check your blog very often.

        In Cuteness we Trust!
