Do you like to drink coffee at some nice cafe? It’s such a perfect way to relax after your daily work. I love to go to cafés to relax while drinking delicious coffee and talking with peers. In Japan there are so many cafes that changed my image of these places. With this article, I want to introduce some unique themed cafes in Japan, that I are cool and interesting. I highly suggest you to go experience these places!
“Neko” means cat in Japanese. So, “Neko Cafe” literally means “Cat Cafe”. What kind of cafe it is then? I have gone to this café before, and at first I thought that the place seems to be a normal cafe with sofas, coffee and magazines. When I looked around the sofas and the shelves, I found all those cute cats sleeping on the top of vending machines, in a basket, etc. What an interesting cafe!
Gundam is a really well known robot anime not only in Japan but also really famous all over the world. Because of its popularity, no wonder that Japan has made the world’s first official Gundam Cafe, which is located in Akihabara. Actually, this café isn’t just a place for all those fans to discuss about the latest Gundam news, but it is also such a nice place to take a break too. You can also try the Gundam-themed snacks, such as ningyo-yaki, a Gundam shaped sweet filled with peanut butter.
