We've seen maid coffee, neko coffee and cosplay café, but did you know that there is also Monster Café? That's right, in the Harajuku District in Tokyo there is the Kawaii Monster Café, which is a very different kind of restaurant or cafe. For those who know the Harajuku neighborhood, you know that it is famous for its unique colorful and crazy fashion. But those who enter the Kawaii Monster cafe are able to be even more surprised.
When you enter Kawaii Monster Cafe through the mouth of a giant monster you are faced with a colorful, flashy, bright and unique space. Like most cafe restaurants, you are served by a girl kawaii, who this time is dressed as a monster but is nonetheless kawaii. The food and drinks served are completely colorful and crazy looking like a work of art. The best thing is that here you can take pictures of the Monster Girls without worrying about paying nonsense as it is at Maid Cafe. Here absolutely everything is different and colorful, the ceiling, the bathroom, the tables and even the menu.
How did Kawaii Monster Cafe come about?
O Kawaii Monster Cafe is a restaurant designed by Sebastian Masuda, responsible for the crazy clips from Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. He also owns a famous Harajuku kawaii store called 6%DOKIDOKI. This restaurant, which is also a kind of night club, opened in the summer of 2015.
During the day there are shows and music performed by the Monsters Girls, during the evenings the hottest shows usually happen.
