Japanese Cafes

I visited lots of cafes in Tokyo, starting with the Shirokuma (Polar Bear) Cafe, which is based on the manga and anime series about a lazy panda who gets a job at a cafe run by a polar bear.

I also went to the Harry Hedgehog Cafe.

And the Studio Ghibli Museum.

And Okunoshima (Rabbit Island). The island is home to thousands of wild rabbits, plus a poison gas museum. (Prior to WW2, the Japanese military used the island to manufacture poison gas).

I also paid a quick visit to Kumamoto, to see Kumamon. This is another way that Melbourne’s public transportation is inferior to Japan’s – it is sadly lacking in giant bear heads.
