Neko no Gohanyasan × Cute Cube Harajuku
Rather than being character-themed, this collaboration café incorporates the theme of “headwear for cats”, creating an entirely new kind of collaboration café called “Neko no Kaburimono” (Cats in headwear). Cat photographer Sakura Ishihara has displayed numerous photographs of adorable cats wearing headwear. There is not a single real cat at the exhibition so those who are allergic to cats can also enjoy this exhibition.
