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.
