KAWAII MONSTER CAFE, Tokyo
The KAWAII MONSTER CAFE HARAJUKU was opened on August, 2016, and it is entering into a list of Tokyo’s must-see lists.
The cafe is located in the hub of Tokyo’s Harajuku district and was created by artist Sebastian Masuda.
For a 500 yen entrance fee visitors can spend 90 minutes inside the overwhelmingly adorable design. You step into inside, you can see oversized macarons as wall decorations, a bubble tea large enough to bathe in, a birthday cake merry-go-round, and unicorns, bunnies, and kitty cats everywhere. The shop is staffed by five so-called “Monster Girls”—Baby, Dolly, Candy, Nasty, and Crazy, it seems their names are not indicative of their customer service skills. You needn’t have any anxiety on this point.
The concept of the cafe is next-generation’s Kawaii. The inside of the cafe is filled with the art objects of the colorful animal and mushroom form, and the shortcake-shaped merry-go-round turns to the center. It is poppy and colorful, and partly poisonous-looking.
The interior has an atmosphere as if you are swallowed to “Inside of the stomach of a monster”. The number of visitors continues increasing since opening of the cafe and becomes the spot of the extreme popularity.
