As Tokyo enters the second phase of its reopening plan, many chain and department stores that were closed for the past two months have started to open their doors again. While the Sanrio Puroland amusement park may still be closed, you can now get your Hello Kitty fix at the new Sanrio Cafe, opening in Ikebukuro on Friday June 5.

Located in the basement of
Ikebukuro Sunshine City, the café is all decked out with Sanrio characters including Hello Kitty, Gudetama and Badtz-Maru. The kawaii factor continues into the food menu, where you'll find burgers (¥1,000) with characters like Twin Little Stars and Gudetama stamped on the bun, as well as pancakes (¥1,000) shaped like Cinnamoroll and Pom Pom Purin. The colourful smoothies (¥600) and nine types of latte art (¥500) are just as cute.

The takeout section, which sits at the entrance, features a food truck-inspired counter offering a good selection of Instagram-worthy desserts. Think Hello Kitty-shaped doughnuts (¥230-¥250), daifuku mochi (¥800 for set of four), cutesy crepes (¥600), and ice cream (¥500) shaped like your favourite Sanrio characters.

While many of us are excited to dine out again, it’s important to follow the café's social distancing rules. Diners are advised to wear a mask and keep a 1.5m distance from each other when queuing. Hand sanitisers will be available at the front of the store, so make sure to use it as you enter.
