KAWAII MONSTER CAFE to open in Harajuku
KAWAII MONSTER CAFE produced by Masuda Sebastian will open on August 1, 2015 in Harajuku.
The theme of this cafe is a brand-new TOKYO that no one has seen before. It includes overseas tourists in the target audience and aims to become a new Harajuku attraction by the Tokyo Olympics.
As a cafe, KAWAII MONSTER CAFE will be the largest in Tokyo based on area.
When you first walk into the cafe which images being swallowed in by a monster, the first thing that welcomes you is a sweets-styled merry-go-round.
Beyond that are four zones. One is the MUSHROOM DISCO with colorful, poisonous mushrooms and plants of outer-space covering the ceiling.
The MILK STAND is decorated with a large rabbit drinking milk out of a baby bottle, along with sheep and unicorns.
The third zone is the BAR Experiment, a bar counter surrounded by mysteriously glowing jellyfish.
The Mel-Tea ROOM serves as the final zone and is decorated with macarons and chocolate.
The cafe provides menu items under the concept of delicious, fun, and photogenic. Such items are filled with so much impact that it makes you doubt whether you can actually eat it!
Examples include the main menu Colorful Poison Parfait Extreme and the Colorful Rainbow Pasta (Painter) Dip, which came about from the idea of “What if I draw inside the mouth with pasta?”
MAKIZUSHI (Kirimi) was developed for overseas customers.
Other items include Waffle Chicken Brooklyn with Monster Dip, a combination of maple syrup and waffle chicken, and limited set menus to celebrate the cafe’s opening.
KAWAII MONSTER CAFE includes cafe servers and a visual icon MONSTER GIRL. MONSTER GIRL consists of five girls that truly maintain the Harajuku-style to promote Japanese KAWAII culture to the world.
These girls’ costumes were designed by fashion blogger Misha Janette. The unique fashion features rockets and ribbons, intended to influence the next generation of Harajuku fashion.
The cafe BGM features creations by RAM RIDER. With the music included, KAWAII MONSTER CAFE aims to go BEYOND THE KAWAII.
