Japan is clearly the go-to destination for all things cute. In the past, we brought you Little Twin Stars and My Melody-themed cafes in Japan, where you can eat the world’s most adorably shaped foods. And of course by now, you probably already know about Sanrio’s Hello Kitty cafe that has now expanded its stores worldwide. But obviously, the cartoon-themed cafe trend isn’t complete without everyone’s favorite yellow rodent – Pikachu. Hence, a Pikachu pop-up cafe made its debut in downtown Tokyo, Japan on July 19, shortly after the release of Pokemon the Movie XY, a Japanese anime film. In addition to purchasing adorable Pokemon-themed food and beverages at the cafe, you can also purchase Pokemon postcards, T-shirts and more.
Even though the franchise is now 20 years old, die-hard fans (surprisingly, mostly adults!) still go the distance to stand in long lines, eagerly waiting for their Pikachu-shaped meals. The pop-up cafe ends on August 31, so Pokemon fans, get moving!
Here are some of the cafe’s most appetizing dishes!
