Everybody’s favourite lazy, lethargic egg Gudetama – one of Sanrio‘s popular and most recognisable characters – is celebrating his 5th anniversary this year. Numerous events are taking place in Japan to get in on the fun.
Gudetama was born in 2013 and has made a reputation for himself around the world for both his sluggish appearance and attitude. He is known as the egg with no energy or enthusiasm for anything.
Let’s take a look at 3 events taking place in collaboration with Gudetama.
