Polar Bear Cafe

To be honest I hadn’t heard of the Polar Bear Cafe until I saw a tiny picture in a magazine. It said Shiro Kuma, which means White Bear (part of the 10 Japanese word that I master ;)) and when I Googled a bit more the cutest menu showed up.

The Polar bear Cafe doesn’t serve the special items below anymore, but I did see new character food from them. So if you happen to be in japan, I think it’s definitely worth a visit. For now feel free to drool over these pictures:

Shiro Kuma Polar Bear Cafe

The actual Shiro Kuma Cafe in Takadanobaba (try to repeat that several times), Shinjuku, Tokyo. A big plush version of the penguin and panda are sitting behind the counter, where you can order a cute menu with free illustrated coaster. You can also find a selection of character goods and manga’s in the cafe. The official Shiro Kuma Cafe website has got a map with directions, it’s a short walk from the Takadanobaba Station.

Shiro Kuma Polar Bear Cafe Anime

The cafe originated from a Manga by Aloha Higa and it’s run by both humans and animals. The main characters are a polar bear, penguin and panda with his adorable panda-shaped handbag. You can watch the anime with English subs on Anime Season.
