Toys to Tokyo?

Can’t make it to Narita with your Teddy bear in tow? The Unagi Travel company will take your stuffed toy on a grand adventure, without your having to lift a finger—except to reach for your wallet.

It’s an offering for the laziest of armchair travelers. For the cost of one-way postage to Japan (the return shipment is free), plus $35 on up, your plush toy can see the sights: shopping districts, Buddhist temples, skyline views, even spas. Really, spas?
