Coffee in the company of Moomin

While reading the books or watching the cartoons about the cuddly Moomin trolls, did you ever fantasize about sitting down for a meal with them? At Moomin Cafe in Japan, this fantasy can become reality.

The basic concept of the café is that after customers have bought their food or drinks, they are escorted to and seated at a table. Next to them sits a large stuffed animal depicting one of the characters from the Finnish Moomin cartoon series.

The themed restaurant has become wildly popular among the Japanese, who are known world-wide for their Moomin obsession.  A common trend among the visitors is taking pictures of their stuffed “dates” and uploading them on social media.
