Kawaii Monster Cafe in Tokyo Japan

StartFragment x-tinymce/html

So I've been slacking on my writing! Sorry, I am currently traveling and honestly I can't wait to get home. This week I am spending some time in Japan, which has been so amazing!

For lunch I stopped at Kawaii Monster Cafe, which is in Harajuku (about a 5-10 min walk down Takeshita street depending on how busy it is, Sundays are PACKED). The cafe is on the 3rd floor, so after a short ride up I got to the front door.

I arrived on Sunday at about 1 and there was no line! Not sure what other days and times are like but I've often heard people had to wait in line.

They allowed me to select an area that I wanted to sit in, explained that there is a 500 ¥ entrance fee and everyone who goes in has to buy 1 food item and one drink.

The menu is moderately priced with a couple of expensive items. While I was there, there were no performances, but I have heard the monster girls sing, dance, and put on an amazing show. Also on Thursday nights from 8pm on there is a burlesque show. I also read that you have to buy a lollipop to take a picture with the monster girls (which is 500 ¥) but I was allowed to take pictures for free.

A few people mentioned that service was not great, but my experience was good. I think you have to keep in mind that in Japan people do not work for tips, so it's simply a different experience than in America, where sometimes the waiters hover.

The weekend menu only had a few options, I got the popcorn shrimp and the fries which came with colorful sauces ( you guys know I LOVE COLOR! If you didn't know follow me on Instagram here). You can't really go wrong with deep fried stuff, the food was pretty good. The sauces were ketchup, mustard, wasabi, and the last 2 I have no idea!
