Le café où l'on mange avec des peluches

Situé dans lecentre commercial LaQua près de la gare de Korakuen, leMoomin Bakery & Café est l'un des cafés à thème les pluspopulaires de Tokyo. La raison de son succès ? Ses peluchesMoomins (ou Moumines) qui tiennent compagnie aux clients durant leur repas !

The world of the Moomins

Created in the late 1940s by Finnish illustrator Tove Jansson, the Moomins (called Mumintroll in Swedish) are the main characters of a series of popular children's books. The stories are centered on the Moomin family, a family of hippopotamus-like creatures who have crazy adventures in an imaginary forest in northern Finland.

Hugely successful around the world, the Moomins have given rise to many animated adaptations since the 1970s. And it's especially beloved in Japan, which today has several themed cafes and shops related to these small Finnish hippos.

Whether you come alone or with friends, the cafe staff will always introduce you to one of the giant Moomin soft toys at the establishment! And "introduce" is definitely the right word here - the Moomin will sit at your table with you as a dining companion. It's a fun idea that will delight not just the fans of the Moomin universe, but also children, with whom the cafe is particularly popular.

The cafe also has a souvenir shop selling many Moomin-themed goods. In case leaving your new Moomin friend at the end of the meal is too painful...
