The bears are in town! It may be a bit too early for Christmas, but Lawson convenient stores in Japan have already started receiving orders for their 2016 Christmas cake lineup, which they revealed on September 20th.

The first of the bunch is Kumamoto prefecture's mascot, Kumamon. Showing his iconic mouth, ears, eyes, and red cheeks, the cake is filled with cocoa sponge, with whipped custard and chocolate cream coating the entire outer layer.

Next is Rilakkuma and his cute friend Korilakkuma. Rilakkuma contains layers of whipped custard and caramel cream, while Korilakkuma contains whipped cream and strawberry flavors.

All of them are priced at 3,500 yen (34.45 USD) and can be found at Lawson stores until December 15th.
