Kitaro Chaya

A yokai-themed cafe based on the manga “Gegege no Kitaro”

Cafe

This cafe’s theme is based on the popular manga and anime “Gegege no Kitaro.”
It’s located in an old wooden building that was remodeled and then re-designed to capture the world of yokai (supernatural creatures in Japanese folklore that play a prominent part in Gegege no Kitaro). The cafe’s yokai-inspired theme pervades throughout every aspect of its design.
The cafe features sweets based on popular characters from Gegege no Kitaro, as well as other original menu items inspired by yokai.
There’s a shop and gallery connected to the cafe as well. The shop offers a wide variety of Kitaro-themed merchandise, as well as limited-edition items that you can’t find anywhere else.

Highlights

  • Enjoy Japanese-style sweets based on characters from the manga.
  • The shop features a ton of Kitaro merchandise on display, which is fun to see even if you’re just looking.
  • They have a Kitaro statue outside that’s great for taking photos.
