Who doesn’t love Tokyo’s variety of themed cafés: cat cafés, snake cafés, manga cafés, anime cafés… The newest in this line is the pop-up Sailor Moon café, open until Sept 28 in the heart of Kabukicho. Anime-songs-playing bar Anion Station has been transformed into a veritable Sailor Moon world, with the menu featuring everything from star and moon-studded options to sodas in colours representing your favourite characters. There will also be some limited edition merchandise on sale. Akihabara meets Kabukicho, in a way.
The opening marks the second season of the Sailor Moon Crystal series. It’s the second reincarnation of the café this year, with the first edition opened back in April. Visiting, however, is a bit more complex than just walking through the door: you’ll have to make a reservation through their website (in Japanese).
