Tokyo is not short of restaurants inspired by the world of 2D media. There are time-limited pop-up venues such as the permanent "Sailor Moon" musical restaurant and cafe and Ranma 1/2 Cafe for the Pokemon franchise and the Square Enix Cafe video game area.
The newly opened pop-up coffee shop "2D Cafe" in Tokyo, Japan seems to be a cafe in which everything looks in 2D! As soon as you pass the main gate, you feel like you're a cartoon character. Is it neat?
The coffee shop is located in the Shin Okubo district of Tokyo and is the dream of all Instagram. Everything from tables and chairs to curtains and wallpapers are made to resemble black and white comic books or comics.
It feels like you're in a comic book, from a retro-looking entrance to a well-decorated monochrome decor with white floors, walls, furniture, and other small details. So if you order a fashionable bubble tea (now found in every corner of Japan) or a delicious dessert, everything will look surreal and vivid with a trick to make sure your eyes are real.
The interesting fact is that the furniture is actually two colors, so it is not a solid color. All flat surfaces are white and the edges have smooth, uneven black stripes, like sketch lines. But in some cases there is no deception at all. For example, curtains and flowers are actually flat artwork.
As for food and drink, the colors really seem to pop. This cafe offers a variety of bubble teas to choose from among pineapple, blueberry, tomato, and mango flavors, and pat bing seven flavors of Korean shaved ice desserts, including strawberries and banana azuki. Therefore, visitors can not only admire the unusual interior design, but also taste a delicious new taste.
Everyone knows who leads to different realities through cartoons and other animations that cling to Japanese people. So given this fact, this cafe should be one of the most visited cafes in Tokyo. It makes our real 3D world look like a flat picture in a cartoon. Let's admit that we all want to visit this two-dimensional world!
