Newly opened in summer 2019, Dotonbori’s PINK KAWAII CAFE !
＊KAWAII means “cute” in Japanese. A whole subculture developed around this concept.
Looking out along the Dotonbori River is a not-so-inconspicuous pink cafe, where you can experience Japan’s KAWAII culture. So, we brought along a couple of our foreign friends to give it a try!
▼A unicorn stands by the entrance to greet us as we come up the stairs.
COLORFUL! PINK! KAWAII!
The interior is decorated with works by the popular illustrator, Project C.K. Large prints featuring original characters make for awesome pics!
This cafe is centered around the concept of a fashion show by dolls (staff). Unlike a maid cafe, where everyone is dressed in the same uniform, the girls serve customers in their own, unique outfits.
The colors and individuality of their fashion is just so KAWAII.
DeepExperience Only, Original KAWAII Courses!
There are 2 original DeepExperience courses, both including a drink, food, and dessert, plus a special picture together with one of the dolls! (The included foods are different)
＜KAWAII Enjoy PLAN＞
▼To start off, the drink...in a baby bottle?
Drink and become an infant again.
Inside is a frozen drink of pink and blue.
▼On to the main course〜Omurice
Omurice is like a plain omelette on top of rice. Topped with ketchup, they’ll draw whatever you like with the ketchup!
▼A cute kitty completes the dish!
▼Here, before eating, we recite the charm together to cast a spell on the food.
▼Lastly dessert, the KAWAII Parfait
The parfait keeps with the colorful theme!
All of the items are so cute and perfect for your social media.
＜KAWAII Experience PLAN＞
This plan comes with the same baby bottle drink, WAKUWAKU Potatoes, and hotcakes with a drawing.
▼The fries come with 5 brightly colored sauces!
Give them a try and see if you can guess what they are.
▼Like the omurice, the pancakes also receive the drawing feature.
Photo shoot with the dolls!
Get pictures not just of the cute food, but with the cute dolls too!
▼Pose for the camera on stage, in front of the counter.
You’ll get a polaroid personally decorated by the dolls to take home.
▼The photos we took this time!
Other menu options include stuff like decorated cupcakes, a mysterious color-changing drink, they have so many cute items available♪
What’s more, the ＜KAWAII Enjoy PLAN＞ also comes with 5 original character postcards by Project C.K. They could make awesome souvenirs!
Neither course has a time limit, so you can relax while you talk with the dolls. Talk with each of them and ask them about fashion or whatever’s on your mind!
Experience Japanese KAWAII culture!
This is a good option for those who are interested in unique Japanese fashion, artwork, or cute things. There’s no smoking or drinking in the store, so even families can bring along the kids and have fun in this cafe.
