Guessing from products like giant isopod tea bags, octopus hand towels, and a whole series of fish-themed accessory pouches that we've seen in the past, it's probably safe to say that Japan has a strong fascination for creatures inhabiting the darkest depths of the sea. And while some species of deep sea creatures can be visited at the Numazu Deep Sea Aquarium in Shizuoka Prefecture, the mysterious creatures are also being housed at Tokyo's Sunshine Aquarium for a brief two-month period.

From now until March 5th, 2017, visitors at the Sunshine Aquarium will be able to step into the world of deep sea creatures like giant isopods, largehead hairtails, and cute little flapjack octopuses. But since it's never enough to simply visit them, the aquarium is also selling irresistible goods at their gift shop — giant isopod slippers and flapjack octopus plushies!

XL Flapjack Octopus Plushie

This little guy is probably the most popular deep sea creature among aquarium visitors in Japan, known for its small round body and adorable ear-like fins. Though there's nothing small about this extra large plushie, its large size will accommodate even more of its explosive cuteness.
