Tips from the community
One of the most wildly-instagrammed things to do in Japan, the Kawaii Monster Cafe is a ludicrously-designed place with silly creatures adorning every wall, doorway, table, and chair. The servers are dressed up in lavish, adorable outfits, and the food is the brightest, most colorful cuisine you’re likely to see in your lifetime. Eating here is akin to taking part in the Mad Hatter’s tea party, if that party were held in the brain of a six-year-old girl. An incredible experience. Traveling beyond Tokyo?

If you’re looking for some serious fun in one of the biggest cities in Japan, check out this seriously amazing restaurant in Tokyo. This café is all about aesthetic. Its ethos is simple: how much cuteness can you stomach before you can’t take any more? They’ve pushed this question as far as it can safely go, with an overabundance of adorable monsters and creatures filling the café, serving you drinks, and entertaining you. The food is great, too.

Kawaii Monster Cafe is one of the most famous restaurants in all of Tokyo. The cafe is designed with bright colors and structures of characters along with neon lights to make you feel as though you truly just walked into wonderland with Alice. The sweets here are 100% worth the higher price, they have huge colorful sundaes, cakes, and drinks designed to make you feel like you are an evil scientist experimenting in a lab.

Kawaii Monster Cafe Lists

- madeleineray (Madeleine Ray) Along with eccentric fashion, alleyways stuffed with world-famous boutiques, and loads of Japanese pop culture; Harajuku is famous for its endless amount of sweets. When I first moved to Tokyo in 2014, the go-to snack in Harajuku was Japanese style crepes, but the newest trend in the area is Bubble tea. Bubble tea became so popular in Tokyo that you can find it at the convenience store or at local fast-food chains. Other iconic desserts from Harajuku are insanely fluffy pancakes, honey toast, and of course the world-famous Kawaii Monster Cafe. While the trends are always changing in the world of sugary treats, in this list I’ve included some classic favorites from the hay-day of Harajuku fashion as well as the latest spots for you. My Tokyo weekends were not complete without grabbing a bubble tea and visiting the stylish boutiques along Cat Street.
