Rilakkuma-themed Japanese-style cafe Rilakkuma Tea House opens in Itsukushima, Hiroshima

17.April.2019 | FOOD / SPOT

Japanese-style Rilakkuma cafe Rilakkuma Tea House will permanently open up its second shop in Itsukushima, Hiroshima.

 

Itsukushima shrine located in Miyajima of Aki is the symbol of the shop. The large, elegant scarlet shrine gate that floats in the water is built entirely of wood and is one of the most beautiful shrine gates in Japan. The main shrine building has a long, honourable history as a world heritage site. As it was built by the sea, the beautiful wooden structure is famous worldwide.

 The Rilakkuma Tea House represents the shrine’s traditional wooden architecture style and the warm atmosphere created by wood. Rilakkuma’s favourite food, honey, is also a main theme.

 

The healthy menu and Japanese-style dessert menu which are popular at the Rilakkuma Tea House will also be available at the Itsukushima cafe. There are also dishes that use Miyajima and Hiroshima’s famous delicacies including oysters and lemons. This is a flavour adventure you can only enjoy in Hiroshima!
