Tokyo’s Kawaii Monster Cafe is a flamboyant, Harajuku-inspired restaurant that is well-known among both Japanese locals and tourists alike.

Harajuku x Kawaii x Hello Kitty collaboration

To celebrate its four-year anniversary this year, the popular cafe will be teaming up with Hello Kitty for a Harajuku x Kawaii x Hello Kitty collaboration.

The cafe is launching a Hello Kitty room, a themed menu, and limited edition merchandise that will be available to the public from July 12 to September 1, 2019.

One of the most beloved sections of the cafe — the Mel-Tea Room — comes in pastel rainbow colours and will be dedicated solely to Hello Kitty.
