Kawaii Sumikko Gurashi Cafe ☕


Hi Kawaii Travelers!

Kaila here~

Weeks ago, my friend and I visited a Sumikko Gurashi-themed cafe located at Tachikawa, Tokyo. It’s only until September 29 this month so if you are a big Sanrio / Sumikko fan, you should definitely go to this place!

Seats are limited and I suggest that you get “ticket reservations” as early as you could. The cafe opens at 11AM.

Jeremee and I arrived at the Cafe at around 1PM and we got tickets for the 4-5PM slot.

It was a Saturday.

Since we were already feeling full (killed time at an IKEA store nearby and we ate haha), we just decided to share the pancakes together. I ordered the ~fancy~ coffee drink while Jeremee ordered the soda one.

There’s a Kotobukiya merch store (that also sells Sanrio / San-x, Pokemon, Anime items) just beside the cafe.. so make sure you bring enough funds with you haha.

Samantha Thavasa collaborated with artist KLOKA for their Bon Bon Voyage collection. It was launched for everyone last August 11 and it will be running until September 9. It was filled with whimsical objects such as candy-coloured clouds and pastel furnitures. It reminded me of “The Secret Patisserie” event by KLOKA I attended back in 2015. – Ashley

Pikachu Outbreak in Yokohama ⚡


Hi Kawaii Travelers!

If you are in Tokyo until this weekend, you might want to take a side trip to Yokohama for the Pikachu outbreak!

Last week, my friends and I went to Yokohama to watch Pikachu shows. There were too many people so we were not able to take photos of the Pikachu dance parade itself.

At least, we were able to take a snap of the Pikachu float, haha!

We decided to hang around Queen’s because the heat outside was too unbearable. There were sooo many Pikachu merch being sold everywhere!

Extra: Where to find Pikachu / Pokemon Merchandise??

While roaming around Shinjuku, Ashley & I happened to spot some Pikachu items that you guys might also like.

You don’t have to visit Pokemon Center stores to buy Pikachu merch ~

Village Vanguard Shinjuku (Marui Annex) never disappoints. They have a Pikachu corner for Pokemon fans!
