Enjoy summer with Duffy at Roppongi Hills

From July 3, 2015 to March 18, 2016 everyone can enjoy a journey with Duffy at Tokyo Disney Resort. But there is also a chance to see the famous Disney bear and his best friends absolutely free of charge! A special exhibition by Disney Sea is held at the Summer Station in Roppongi Hills until August 23, 2015.


In the Mickey Mouse Universe, Duffy is Mickey’s teddy bear and his travel companion! Minnie Mouse created Duffy for Mickey and she also loves to hug this bear. Well, who doesn’t?


Actually, the story of the Disney bear is a little contradictory. At first he was created as a completely different personality, with another background and without any name. But it wasn’t until the aggressive marketing in Japan by the owner of Tokyo Disney Resort in Urayasu that he became popular and known as Duffy.


Duffy’s friend (also created by Minnie) is Shellie May, a pink bear with a bow, heart-shaped sea-shell pendant and adorable blue eyes. Although she appeared at Disneyland Paris during one event, permanently she can be seen only at Tokyo Disney Sea.


Advice: try to come on weekdays or at least avoid the evenings. The visitors are allowed to see the exhibition in groups and the waiting time can increase considerably during peak hours.
