Read on to find out more about the 3 Beauty and the Beast cafes in Japan!
Staying true to the movie’s French setting, Japan’s Beauty and the Beast cafe looks like a Parisian tea room. A high ceiling with blue drapes and a chandelier, plush velvet pouf seats, and furniture with curlicue details give the place a royal air.
Plenty of books are littered around - a nod to Belle’s love for reading. You’ll also spot characters like Lumiere and Mrs Potts as part of the decor, in the form of figurines and wall decals.
Other Easter eggs include a little stained glass window, bearing the design of the iconic castle in the movie. This is the same castle you’ll see at Tokyo Disneyland.
You can also feast your eyes on a display of the gorgeous Beauty and the Beast Library Dress by Japanese fashion brand Secret Honey. If it’s love at first sight, you can always buy one for yourself from Hana Castle Store.
As with most character-themed cafes, this Beauty and the Beast one in Japan has special styled food items.
A standout dish is Cream Curry Rice in the Night Sky (JPY1,890, ~S$24.58). The Japanese curry rice is arranged to look like Belle and the Beast doing a romantic slow dance together - perfect for sharing with bae.
If you’re popping by for tea, get the Chip To The Rescue Afternoon Tea (JPY1,090, ~S$14.18), a set of scones with tea jelly in a character tea set.
Pair it with the Straight Tea (JPY990, ~S$12.88), which comes in a classy glass teapot and royal-looking mug with a picture of Belle on it. If you’d like to have the mug for keepsies, you can purchase it at JPY2,790 (~S$36.29) including the beverage.
Free coasters are also yours to keep with cold beverages like the Mango Smoothie, Yogurt Smoothie, or “Rose Water” (JPY1590, ~S$20.68). Alternatively, order the drinks by themselves for JPY890 (~S$11.58).
As there are fixed dining time slots, you are strongly advised to make a prior reservation online. This will cost you JP650 (~S$8.45), but you’ll also be getting your money’s worth with not just a secured seat, but a Beauty and the Beast place mat to bring home. 1 of the 4 pink or blue designs will be given to you at random.
Another freebie you’ll get is a bookmark when you spend at least JPY2000 (~S$26.01).
Speaking of merchandise, there are plenty of pretty items up for purchase such as notebooks, files, and even tea tins designed to look like books.
