“Neko no Gohanya-san” – Collaborative Cafe

Located on the third floor of Cute Cube Harajuku along Harajuku’s iconic Takeshita Street is Kawaiiya where they are currently holding a photo exhibition and cafe in collaboration with Neko no Kaburi Mono, a capsule toy series that was first released in September 2015. When thinking of a dish with ‘cat’ as the keyword, there’s nothing more perfect than neko manma, which translates to ‘cat food’ but refers to a dish made up of leftovers. Look forward to their ‘Ultimate Neko Manma’ made with large servings of sliced dried bonito.
