Considered the first Japanese-inspired pop-art space and café in California, Royal/T Café in Culver City, Los Angeles, became the place where art, whimsicality, Japanese-French cuisine, tea and Japanese pop culture merged. In the past five years, this establishment held fund-raisers, art exhibits, workshops, parties and other fun activities.
