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.

Doraemon Invasion in Roppongi 


On our way to the Ghibli exhibit (read more here) at Mori Art Museum, Kaila and I chanced upon the Doraemon invasion at Roppongi Hills as well.  So funny that we are not actually aware that there’s such thing. What a perfect timing indeed, hitting two birds in one stone!

It was terribly windy that day, if you haven’t noticed. There was a typhoon passing by but not directly hitting Tokyo. The hanabi / matsuri in Chiba that our friend Yumi-san was about to attend was also cancelled. She actually invited both of us to attend (maybe next year?).

The reason why there are a lot of Doraemon in the area is because of TV Asahi’s Roppongi Hills Summer Station. Trivia: TV Asahi’s office is actually located at Roppongi Hills. Aside from anime characters displaying around Roppongi Hills, there will be daily concerts from Japanese artists such as Denpagumi, Crystal Kay, Chris Hart, Super Girls and LiSA. The collaboration will continue until the end of August. So hurry!




Ghibli Museum in Roppongi Hills


Hi Kawaii Travelers!

Kaila and I went to Ghibli museum in Roppongi hills a few days ago and we’re excited to share this experience with you.

The Ghibli Museum started last July 7 and it will run until September 11 only. So if you are in Tokyo during this time, better not miss this rare Ghibli exhibit!

Pro-tip: Fall in line as early as 9:30 am so you won’t wait that much. We arrived at 10:00am and the line was already long.

Ahhh dream come true! We were able to ride the catbus!! Who says it isn’t real?

Can you guess which character this is?

This is our friend Yumi-san, who went to the exhibit with us. She’s super nice!

Totoro at the counter.

(Borrowed photo from fashion-press.net since we could not take photos at this area.)

You’ll see more Ghibli characters from Nausicaa to their latest film titled Red Turtle at the exhibit.

Too amazing in real life!

Look how crowded it is. Tickets cost ¥1,800 for adults.

It’s a little bit expensive but worth it since you can also see Tokyo’s aerial view from the deck.
