The character cafe is a unique experience in Japan where a cafe collaborates with a well-known character from an anime series, games and so on and themes the decor and menu on that character. Here are some of the collaborative cafes open in May this year.

The Greatest Showman × Tower Records Café
The Tower Records Café is paying homage to the hit musical The Greatest Showman with a collaborative café running from May 9 to 27.

Additionally, special promotional videos will play each day, and there’ll even be events you can participate in on weekends. This café truly captures the world of The Greatest Showman!
Crayon Shin-chan Movie × CHEZ MADU TV Asahi
CHEZ MADU has partnered up with the Crayon Shin-chan movie Crayon Shin-chan: Burst Serving! Kung Fu Boys ~Ramen Rebellion~ and opened a café at Roppongi TV Asahi for a limited period. There, you can enjoy the black panda ramen which appears in the film, as well as a curry inspired by the ‘burst’ part of its title that comes with karaage, gyoza, steamed dumplings and more. This one’s a must-see for fans of Crayon Shin-chan.
My Little Pony × Sweets Paradise
Roll up to the My Little Pony Pinkish Cafe which is open at Sweets Paradise in Shijo Kawaramachi until May 15 and Shinjuku Mylord until May 21. At the Kyoto branch they’re serving ‘Pinkie Pie’s Matcha Cupcakes,’ a flavour representative of Kyoto. The matcha green is decorated with colourful sugar which brings to mind the vibrant world of My Little Pony, as well as strawberries, to make a ‘pop-like’ kind of matcha. There’s also ‘Twilight’s Magical Ice Parfait’ which features the purple pony on top of some ice cream, as well as drinks. Enjoy any of the 13 items on the collaborative menu.
There are so many collab cafes open this month, so if you’re in Japan right now, then why not take a trip with a friend?
