They insist you to consume at least two items so in addition to the admission fee one ends up spending more than in a normal cafe. There is a show however and the cafe itself is a sight to see. Once was enough however.

My tweens were begging to go here and so we relented. In the end, while the room and staff were kawaii, the food was awful and the overall experience was underwhelming. We had also taken them to a cat Cafe and maid cafe, both were...More

You’re spending money on the experience rather than the food quality - fair play to the establishment. The interior is funky and quirky and you should definitely wander around to see all of it. I came at lunch time having prebooked (via voyagin) a drink...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.

If you take the JR Yamamote line to Harajuku station, it is one block from there. If you have internet access, the best tool you can use is google maps. just type in where you want to go and it will give you every detail... More
