These two shops will have a menu that includes some of the dishes that were seen in the movie such as the croquet sandwich, as well as each of Mitsuha and Taki’s breakfast. Other meals and drinks were created and especially themed to recreate scenes from the movie itself.
Aside from food items, the cafes will also be selling “Kimi no Na wa” collaboration merchandise. The items include clear files, t-shirts, cube magnets, key holders, smartphone stands, and many more. Information on the goods and menu can be found on the Tokyo and Nagoya dedicated websites.
The shops will be open from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. (10:30 p.m. for Nagoya) and their physical addresses are as follow:
Tokyo cafe – Tokyo-to, Toshima-ku, Minami Ikebukuro 1-chome 28-2, Ikebukuro Parco Honkan 7th floor
Nagoya cafe – Aichi-ken, Nagoya-shi, Chuo-Sakae 3-29-1, Cats Garden (Nagoya Parco West Annex 8th floor
Apart from the two cafes, fans may also pick up ‘Kimi no Na wa’ souvenir items at separate merchandise shops in Hiroshima Parco, Fukuoka Parco, Osaka Daimaru Shinbaibashi and Sendai Parco.
It’s also worth noting that the inspiration for the staircase scene in the movie is only a few stations away from the Ikebukuro shop, specifically in the neighborhood of Shinjuku.
For those who have plans to visit Japan within these dates, don’t forget to stop by the cafes. If not, there’s still time to get a plane ticket or two. Alfred Bayle
