Kimetsu No Yaiba, also known as Demon Slayer is a very popular anime that has gained more and more viewers since it’s release on Netflix. Due to it’s recent success, many cafes and businesses have wanted to collaborate with the anime to create new demon slayer merchandise and pop up cafes. The latest cafe to be collaborating with Kimetsu No Yaiba is called ‘Sweets Paradise’ and they will be opening pop up cafes throughout Japan for a couple of months. Unfortunately, most of the information out there is in Japanese so I thought to make everyones life easier, I would write this article to give you all the info on the up coming cafe opening at the end of January! So if you’re interested in visiting, keep reading to find out everything you need to know!
The cafe is called ‘Kimetsu Cafe’ and will be in collaboration with ‘Sweets Paradise’. The promotional poster was recently released which shows all the cast in SUPER CUTE restaurant uniforms. The cafe’s manu has not yet been released, however from this poster we can see each character with a different dish, which leads me to believe that the dishes will be character themed. We can see Zenitsu holding OmeRice, Nezuko with Dango in her mouth and Tanjiro with what looks like Gyoza. I’m super excited for the official menu to be released so we can see which Demon Slayer characters have been featured on the menu.
Although the official menu is yet to be released, the cafe has announced some information regarding the menu. Each dish has it’s own price but on top of this, you will need to pay 1,490yen to enter the cafe. Although this may seem like a lot, this gives you access to unlimited refillable drinks and also all-you-can-eat ice cream! (for 80 minutes). All other dishes that you wish to order must be ordered via the ‘order sheet’ and given to one of the staff members.
The cafe has also stated that due to the cafe probably being very popular, their may be a limit on how many dishes you can order.
Just like the menu of the cafe, the lineup of the original Demon Slayer merchandise that will be sold at the cafe has not yet been released. However, this image was recently published in relation to the original merchandise so many have assumed that the Kimetsu No Yaiba merchandise on sale will be based off of these designs. If so, everything is going to be SUPER cute as all the characters seem to be dressed up in waiter’s uniforms and are holding some sort of dish or drink!
Assuming this cafe will be similar to previous Demon Slayer pop up cafes, I would say that the merchandise on sale will be things like clear files, pens, magnets, badges and other small items. Aswell as bigger items such as plushies, posters and mugs. However, as I previously mentioned we do not know yet so this is all just speculation.
You can book your table in advance up to 5 weeks before you go. When a cafe allows you to book your table this far in advance, it usually means it’s going to be VERY busy so if you want to go…book now!!
You can book your table over the phone or on the Sweets Paradise app! If you want to book on the app, make sure to CLICK HERE or download it now using the QR codes below. The app is all in Japanese however I think you will be able to get by if you can read a bit of katakana and have some sort of translation app on hand. If you don’t want to do it via the app, you can also call the shop. Do to there being no information in English I would assume the staff don’t speak much English, however it should be fairly straightforward. The word ‘Yoyaku 予約’ means booking, if you say this I’m sure they will be able to help you out.
If you really can’t speak any Japanese and they cannot understand you on the phone, I would recommend getting someone who is Japanese to help you (this can be done at Tokyo’s many Tourist Information Center’s) or going to the cafe itself so the staff can help you with the app.
The pop up cafe will be held at 14 different locations throughout Japan, so no matter where you are in the country you should be able to get to at least one of these cafes!! Here’s the full list of cafe locations and their dates:
