In Japan, manhole covers are something special. Each area has its own design and some even have colored versions. Since 2018 also Pokemon joined the manhole trend and you can find manhole covers with Pokémon design in many prefectures of the country. In this article I want to tell you how to find the PokéFuta in Kyoto!
Just a few months ago, I wrote a short article about the Arina Tanemura Café which took place in spring. And now it is time for the summer version! Because filming inside the café was not allowed such as last time, I only can show you the café with photos again.
The Arina Tanemura PopUp Café is taking place from 28th July until 23rd August 2021. After the girls have been in focus in spring, now it is the turn for the male characters. Because it is a collaboration with Animate, you can find it at Animate Cafè Ikebukuro No. 3, which is located right next to the main Animate shop. This time, there is also another cafe taking place in Nagoya during the same period.
When I was a teenager back in Germany I read manga and watched anime a lot, which woke up my interest in Japan. One of the manga & anime I really liked was Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne by Arina Tanemura. I was so happy when the 20th Anniversary exhibition took place in 2017 and now her works were back at a time-limited cafe!
The Arina Tanemura PopUp Cafe has taken place at Animate Cafe Ikebukuro No. 2 and was running from 21st April to 24 May 2021. It had the subtitle Precious Wedding Party and was the second cafe of this type. For weekends and public holidays you needed to make a reservation beforehand via the official website, but on normal weekdays you could simply visit it. In case there were too many costumers waiting numbers will be handed out. We went on a weekday and it was not crowded at all.
