I don't ever recall having the desire to nuzzle a bus. Maybe the Catbus from My Neighbor Totoro? This brand new "Duffy Bus" from Tokyo Disney Resort certainly invites snuggles. Come here, bus. How about a hug?

Duffy, of course, is the Disney Bear. The character is popular enough in Japan to warrant his own bus, which will begin driving across Japan this month, stopping at various cities in what Disney is calling "Duffy's Fluffy Journey."

Folks will be able to checkout the bus up close and take photos for warm, fuzzy memories that will live on and on.

Here, you can see photos courtesy of IT Media and GetNews:

Currently, Duffy's journey is scheduled through March 31.
