With most of us cooped up indoors, that desire to go and relax in a cafe with some coffee and cake just keeps on growing. “gmgm,” a doughnut shop in Koenji, Tokyo that specialises in “flower doughnuts,” is very aware of this, and so they opened an online shop on Saturday to allow for people to enjoy that authentic cafe experience from their own home.
gmgm, the flower doughnut shop
Nana Yui, an artist of dried flower art, opened gmgm in June 2019 as the sister store to HANABAR, a bar in Ikebukuro, Tokyo where drinks are served topped with beautiful dried flower art. At gmgm, the beautiful flower art combines harmoniously with the antique furniture and decor. It’s a popular doughnut shop whose doughnuts are beautiful enough to be given as gifts.
Earl Grey x Rose: ¥500
Cream Cheese Strawberry x Safflower: ¥500
The doughnuts gmgm is offering to ship out on their website include their five regular doughnut flavours and some limited-time flavours, all of which are nothing short of cute works of art.
Customers who order on the shop by April 30 will also receive a free dried flower and a tea turns blue. Those who order more than 8 will receive that plus a pressed viola flower you can eat.
You can also make ice cubes with flowers in them and set your table like in the cafe’s photos for a really luxurious tea time!

Tadanori Yokoo Releases Art Book Collection of His Late Beloved Cat Tama
04.April.2020 | FASHION
Since his cat Tama passed away in 2014, Japanese graphic designer and illustrator Tadanori Yokoo has drawn 91 pieces of his beloved feline companion. Those pieces have been compiled into a new art book entitled Tama, Kaetteoide (“Come Home, Tama”).
Tama was a famous cat amongst fans of Tadanori Yokoo, who would feature him on his Twitter page and blog from time to time. Yokoo’s love for Tama was also well-known amongst his followers. Tama was a stray cat and appeared in Yokoo’s garden. In the 15 years Yokoo took care of him, Tama’s affection warmed the hearts of both the artist and his family of fans.
The 91 pieces that Yokoo created of Tama since his passing were originally never going to be seen by anyone. But this year, on the seventh anniversary of Tama’s death, Yokoo has decided to publish them.
Tama, Kaetteoide – ¥2,200 (Before Tax)
The collection features not only art pieces, but diary and written entries too that Yokoo occasionally wrote about Tama. Yokoo’s Twitter page become a diary for the artist, where he expressed his sadness and loneliness after losing his cat, which has received much attention with his followers. The book includes the diary entries from when Tama was alive to his death and up to 2018.
When Yokoo met with Yoko Ono, he said of his work, “I didn’t draw this as artーI drew it as a love letter to my cat,” to which she responded, “And that’s exactly why it’s art.” I too believe that if a piece of art moves a person’s heart, then that in itself makes it art. Featured in this book are many of Yokoo’s diary and written entries about his beloved Tama. But it also begs the question to people what is love, what is life, and what is death? It’s a treasured illustrated collection for people, and above all one you can’t help adoring. I believe this book will add something to the lives of every art fan, of every cat lover, and every person who kindly buys themselves a copy.”
An exhibition showcasing all of the illustrations in the book is set to take place at Nishimura Gallery in the near future. The exhibition has been postponed as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, but you can check the gallery’s official website for when the event will next be rescheduled.

Capy Neko Cafe: Japan’s First Cat and Capybara Cafe Opens in Tokyo
24.January.2020 | FOOD
Capy Neko Cafe is the newest animal cafe to hit Tokyo. Located in the neighbourhood of Kichijoji, right by the station, customers are able to interact with both cats and capybara at the same time.
Japan is famous for its host of animal cafes, from the ubiquitous cat cafes to more unique ones like the owl cafe. But Capy Neko Cafe stands out from the rest as being the first cafe in Japan to combine cats and capybara.
You might wonder whether it’s actually safe to pet a capybara. They may be the largest rodent in the world, but they in fact loved to be pet by people. They are gentle creatures that get on with and can live alongside cats. At the cafe, you can take photos of the capybara who are sure to be chilling on the sofas as well as feed them. The comfy environment also means that they’ll feel like your very own pet capybara at home.
Tawashi is a sensitive, affectionate, and gentle guy. He loves snacks, and he’s sure to flop down if you start petting him on the butt. Part of his daily routine is having an afternoon nap on the sofa together with the cats.
The vice store manager of Capy Neko Cafe. He adores humans. He’s the kind of guy who’ll probably jump up onto you if you cover your lap with a blanket and sit on the sofa.
Another member with a soft spot for humans, Emma is reserved kitty who lets everybody eat their food first. She’s a needy and spoiled girlーif she’s on your lap, you’re not getting up. She’s siblings with Dan.
Cream is everybody’s idol. He’s unapologetically spoiled and a handsome guy with perfectly round black pupils.
This list is just a small taste of the many cute residents to meet at Capy Neko Cafe. The cafe is also active in finding families for their rescued cats. The number of people who want to own a cat in Japan are looking to rescues now instead of pet shops. At Capy Neko Cafe, you get the best of both worlds: you can meet and interact with a cat and see if they’re a good match for you.
If you’re interested in visiting Capy Neko Cafe, keep in mind that priority goes to those who have booked in advance. This can be done via their official website, so book first and look forward to kicking back and enjoying a cup of tea, coffee or soft drink before interacting with the cats and capybara!

Introducing the Kawaii Girls of the World | Kawaii Fashion Snap #4: Pink Paradise
Welcome to Episode 4 of Kawaii Fashion Snap where we get to know all about the kawaii girls of the world and their fashion. Each girl in this series has incorporated Japanese-like fashion into their wardrobe and turned it into something of their own.
Today, we’ll be taking a look at outfits that make use of the colour pink♡
Currently residing in Tokyo, Molly leaves a huge impression with her T-shirt that reads “ANTI WAR” in both English and Japanese. Her stylish use of cute pastel colours throughout accentuates this fashionable look, and her pink and purple hair combined with the thick sole trainers is a match made in heaven.
Molly is a big fan of the Japanese idol group CY8ER and has even gotten a photo with the group―as well as several chekki photos with Rinahamu, one of the members. Be sure to check out her Instagram ＠pink_morii
The Pinkmilkteahime has us wanting to dye our own hair blue because hers looks so cute. This co-ord may look simple at first with the single big pink t-shirt, but in fact the rest of her outfit and all of her accessories are uniformly blue, which makes her hair look even more beautiful. Even the blue and pink artwork in the background is in tune with her look.
On her Instagram, she posts not only more beautiful looks, but pictures of her latest purchases too―from snacks to stationery. Follow her on Instagram ＠pinkmilkteahime
Brodie’s baby pink jumper skirt co-ord is kawaii supreme. She is serving us regalia princess with her frilly blouse and jumper skirt which has sweet patterns on it. And if you look closely, her white phone case has a cute flower pattern design♡
If you’re look for some girly styles then we highly recommend following Brodie @vanillabwunny
Everything about the composition of this shot of Mimi Usagi can be described as cute. She has a cute character t-shirt on, and everything from her innerwear to her skirt is perfectly pink.
Her pink cheek makeup adds a glimmering allure and helps flaunt her clearly innate kawaii. We want to try shooting a look like she has in this photo too! Be sure to follow her ＠usagimimichu
Alexandra has gone for a sexy style here: her simple pink one piece is stunning and laces together flatteringly with those glittery shoes. And all of the items and accessories she has with her are pink, from the chekki camera in her hand to her shoulder bag♡
Alexandra’s Instagram feed is a treasure trove of exquisite and artistic looks. If fantasy takes your fancy, then make sure you follow her ＠sasha786x
If you’d like to feature in the next Kawaii Fashion Snap or know somebody that would, then follow us on Instagram and post at us with the hashtag #moshimoshiphoto. We hope you look forward to the next entry!
