Tokyo takes soft toys on tour

A Japanese travel agency has started taking teddies on tours in place of owners unable to travel.

Pictures are taken of the toys and uploaded online for the proud owners to see.

It's hoped they'll bring a sense of adventure to people who don't normally travel because they can't afford it, they're unwell, or they don't have the time to go.

So far the agency has taken more than 400 toys on trips!
