Kawaii Monster Cafe, produced by maestro Sebastian Masuda, was an entertainment restaurant that visualized Harajuku, a place that continues to produce original culture while incorporating fashion and culture from around the world. As a place of interest for transmitting kawaii culture to the world, its photogenic interior, food, and unique shows attracted a lot of attention. The cafe in the heart of Harajuku offered colorful and fun food experiences and a space that fused kawaii culture with cuisine, as well as Harajuku culture. Regrettably, it closed in January 2021, but now, two years later, Kawaii Monster Cafe has returned with a series of special events. The first Kawaii Monster Party in 2023 will be held on February 23! **February 23 2023 Kawaii Monster Party = Special Birthday Party!?** Monsters will gather in Shinjuku Ni-chome for a stage-style event where you can experience a special moment through music, performances, and special showcases.
