Japan isn't the first country people think about when they hear the word "rain," but they should: Japan has rain almost a third of the year (not to mention it has a rainy season when it rains practically every day for a whole month) and this is the reason you can find rain boots in most Japanese shoes closets. And although they usually come in sober colors, sometimes they can be spectacular – like the My Neighbor Totoro Children's Rubber Boots!
The bright yellow is the first thing you notice about My Neighbor Totoro Children's Rubber Boots but the second is what makes them one (well, two) of a kind: on their ankles is Totoro, the forest spirit from the classic Hayao Miyazaki anime, holding an umbrella, while their heels feature a smiling frog. And if you look inside, there's more: images of Totoro and Susuwatari sprites on their insole and even a tag with Mei and a Susuwatari sprite where you can write your child's name. And they come in three sizes, for ages three to eight (see below for more information).
