Shibuya is the landmark for Japanese teens, and the crossing in front of Shibuya station is where 42% of international travelers go to as it is known from Resident Evil: Retribution and Lost in Translation.

THE GUEST cafe&diner is on the 7th floor at Shibuya PARCO and is surrounded by many apparel stores and restaurants. We have visited the collaborated cafe with Kanahei calld “Kanahei’s YURUTO CAFE“.

As we have talked with the producer of this cafe, he said that all the wall art has been newly created by Kanahei.

When the cafe collaborates with contents, creators or characters the most important thing is food and drink. The customers will not be satisfied if either is not good enough, because they are desired to appreciate the characters.

In other words, if the characters are popular and the menu is creatively delicious the collaboration project should attract fans eventually. In that sense “Kanahei No Yuruto Cafe” must have been definitely successful.

Isn’t it brilliant? This is one of the drink menu called “Piske no Fuwa Fuwa Hatsukoi Watagashi Soda ~ A balloon included~” (880JPY). This Piske is made by cotton candy and Citron flavored jam is set inside. All you need to do is to insert the soda from the top to blend it inside. How does it taste like? It certainly is sweet and refreshing!
