The popularity of character cafés in Japan never lets up, where cafés transform their menu and interior design to fit the theme of popular characters from anime, games and so on.
Here are some of the best character cafés hitting Japan in July 2018.
Gudetama Café x Keroppi
The Gudetama Café is a character café themed on the hugely popular Sanrio character Gudetama. To celebrate his 5th anniversary, Keroppi is stopping by too, another character from the franchise. The menu will be transformed into kawaii dishes inspired by the two lovable characters, something fans absolutely can’t afford to miss out on.

The Yokohama and Nagoya branches of the Pompompurin Café―themed on the popular Sanrio character Pompompurin―is teaming up with Gudetama to introduce a collaborative cute summer menu. It includes lots of kawaii dishes like the ‘Wahhoi! Summer Festival Bibimbap Don’ which features Pompompurin surrounded by beef karubi, kimchi, three kinds of namul, and a soft boiled Gudetama egg for a perfectly complete bibimbap don.
