    Lots of kawaii & girly booths!

    A lot of girls in with the trends of today make their way to MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON FESTIVAL. In the past, there’s been a nail art service where you didn’t need to book, and there’s even been a hair removal salon – something which you normally can’t experience as carefree as this. There’s plenty of content at the festival that’s immensely popular with girls every year. This year, we will be holding the “Harajuku Kawaii Market” at the Laforet Museum in Harajuku! Prepare yourself to become cute just by attending!

    Until last year, the MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON FESTIVAL has been annually held at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium. But that’s about to change this year as we up our game and take the event around Harajuku and Shibuya. This year’s festival is fittingly titled MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON FESTIVAL 2018 in SHIBUYA, so expect to see us delivering Japanese culture to the world from Harajuku & Shibuya.

     

    The festival is free for foreigners, but you’ll need to register in advance. Registration is now open.

    The Halloween event is inviting a host of Japanese artists and comedians to perform inside the virtual space, which itself will be littered with all things Halloween like Jack-o’-lanterns, bats, and more.

  • Review: The 30 Year Old Cafe Chatei Hatou in Shibuya

    18.September.2020 | FOOD

    Hi, everyone. It’s Banako of MOSHI MOSHI FRIENDS. Today I’m reviewing Chatei Hatou, a long-standing cafe in Shibuya, Tokyo.

     

    Shibuya is a place that bustles with youth culture and fashion. It’s also home to many eateries, but there aren’t many places around that you can go to to get away from the busy streets for a quiet break.

    Chatei Hatou opened in 1989 at Miyamasuzaka Shita in Shibuya, where it has gone unchanged and welcomed customers for the past 30 years. It’s very easy to get to, being just a 3-minute stroll from the Hachiko Exit of Shibuya Station.

     

    When opening the door to the cafe and stepping inside, the first thing to jump out at you are the rows of coffee cups lined up along shelves behind the counter.

    The coffee cup collection features a selection of works by many different makers. There’s even a cup in there valued at ¥200,000!

    The antiques littered here and there around the cafe elevate the vibe of the cafe. There’s a number of seating areas, including the counter seats as well as tables for two, four, or big groups.

     

    I felt the faint tasty scent of the Japanese pudding calling to me so I went and ordered a pumpkin pudding along with a hot chocolate.

    Cafe Chocolat (Hot) ¥950 / Pumpkin Pudding ¥500

    The pumpkin pudding was nice and moist and rich in flavour. Nothing short of delicious. It’s made even sweeter when eaten together with the fluffy whipped cream―which also elevates the flavour of the pumpkin too.

    I was inspired by the cafe owner to go for the cup I chose for my hot chocolate. There is so much variety between the cups; it’s fun getting to see rare ones. Be sure to check their Instagram page where they have more detailed write-ups about their coffee cups and coffee varieties.

     

    The cafe has a selection of original coffee blends which they make fresh with the utmost care and consideration. You can buy their coffee beans, take cake away from you, and even order whole cakes, so you can enjoy their delights at home.

     

    Chatei Hatou has stood together with Shibuya these past 30 years. According to the owner, the most important thing about running a cafe is making sure its doors are always open. It’s been tough as a result of the pandemic this year, but the cafe is still there as a part of people’s lives.

     

    The next time you’re in Shibuya, why not enjoy a drink and a sit down at Chatei Hatou?
