Character cafés are an exciting experience in Japan which sees a café collaborate with well-known anime series, game series and various franchises by decorating the café interior with designs and illustrations based on them and meals and drinks inspired by them.

 

These cafés attract public attention every month. There are many collaborations happening this month, so we have split the list into two parts.
