2D Café Shin-Okubo
Time Out says
This mind-bending café in Shin-Okubo might fool your eyes with a neat optical illusion: the entire space looks like a flat, two-dimensional illustration. With its monochromatic black-and-white setting, you’ll feel like you have just walked into a manga comic panel. The all-white furniture are really convincing as 2D illustrations, especially with the edges painted in black sketch outlines. Decorations such as flower pots, cushions and curtains, however, are really just drawings on the walls.
In here, the colours of the food really pop. Aside from a wide range of bubble tea – flavours include pineapple, blueberry, tomato and mango – you can also opt for patbingsu Korean-style shaved ice desserts. These icy treats come in seven different flavours: strawberry, banana, azuki (sweet red beans) and more.
