The first time I went to Harajuku, I saw the Kawaii Monster Cafe and knew I would need to make a visit.
I made several inquiries to friends who had visited. Their feedback, over priced and average food, caused me to push this towards the bottom of my list of things to do. However, if the situation presented itself, I knew I would seize the chance to go. A couple weeks ago, Katie and I decided to take Virginia and her friend, Kailey once school was out. We met on the train and enjoyed the trip together. Check out the girls and their outfits. They created them themselves! Kawaii!
Katie was able to make us reservations at 11:30. We were the first group seated! Talk about head of the line privilege!
Before being seated, you have a choice of where you would like to sit. Virginia and Kailey selected the Mushroom Box for us.
We ordered our lunch set. Our lunch set included a main dish, drink, and soft cream and cost $27 each! Yes, a little expensive. It was surprisingly delicious. I had low expectations based on reviews and I was pleasantly surprised. Katie and I each ordered the Teriyaki Chicken Rice bowl and the girls each ordered chicken and waffles.
The soft cream was well, kawaii!
The restaurant had so much kawaii. I mean so much. From the rotating cake stage, to the ceiling, the tables, and even the bathroom!
The chandelier and sink in the bathroom. Those are bouncy balls!
Plus, there was a show. A bit of a song and dance. The huge kawaii character was indeed kawaii!!
I took a video of the show. There is so much going on and there are only three characters! I apologize for the quality of the video. It’s hilarious and worth watching regardless.http://wabisabisole.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/img_9101.mov
No trip to Harajuku with a kid is complete without a cotton candy mountain. Two, please, for these kawaii girls! Thank goodness for wet wipes.
Virginia and Kailey also worked on their modeling poses by the Harajuku Kawai clock and pink Christmas tree!
It was a fun afternoon. I would definitely go back for a special occasion. Like if a friend visits with her daughters. I’m glad I was able to go with the girls. I don’t think Dave would have been keen on a date night here.
