Hamtaro Cafe –
A limited period pop up cafe opened in Koshigaya yesterday. Box Cafe and Space in Koshigaya are hosting a celebratory Hamtaro Cafe pop up to mark the 20th anniversary of the popular children’s character Hamutaro. It will remain open until February 24th. There is an exclusive Hamtaro goods shop open to the patrons of the cafe (only) during this period.
There is simultaneously another Hamtaro pop up cafe in Tokyo. The Tokyo branch requires advance booking, but the branch in Saitama doesn’t take bookings so you can just walk in. The Saitama branch in Box Cafe and Space in Koshigaya is open from 11 am to 8 pm.
The menu is quite basic, but very artistic and colourful. Food includes Hamtaro curry, Omerice, and stew. Desserts include pancakes and cake, and you can get decorative drinks too. Food prices are all above 1,000 yen.
They will give each paying customer a commemorative gift of either a place mat or a coaster. They are selected randomly.
