Japanese candy and snacks are often very unique on their own. Here at TokyoTreat, we often hunt down the tastiest and cutest Japanese snacks for our Japanese candy box. However, sometimes we like to take some time to appreciate other aspects of the Japanese cuisine scene, like awesome handmade bento boxes. We also enjoy stopping in occasional character cafes, especially the newest Pokemon cafe, which leads us to one insanely kawaii Japanese cafe – the Pompompurin Cafe!
Pompompurin is a cute golden retriever (mixed with pudding) character from Sanrio that is very popular for how pudgy and lovable he is. He is one of the current trending top kawaii characters, and is actually featured in the upcoming YumeTwins kawaii box, which is why he has a whole cafe devoted to him! Look at all the awesome dishes featured in the menu above! Now, let's take a look at a few of them up close!
These are cute lattes that can be found at this cafe! The two flavors here are both cookie and cream, but the left one is caramel while the right one is matcha! We wonder which Japanese candy from our Japanese snack box could be paired well with these drinks!
Next, we have this scrumptious lookin' fried meat. Oh wait, surprise! It is actually cheesecake! It is a yummy Japanese sweet disguised like a meat dish using crumbled cake to look like bread coating and chocolate sauce to resemble miso sauce! What a fun, interesting dish!
Now, this is actually a meal — we swear it isn't another disguised dessert! This is a bowl of creamy stew that uses rice to recreate Pompompurin plopping his head into the stew and slurping it all up. It is so cute that we wish there was a Japanese candy version we could include in our snack box!
Well, are your interested piqued about this fun cafe? You can check it out in Harajuku during your next trip to Japan! Let us know in the comments below which snack or dish looked most appetizing to you!

Ask a Japanese person to think of popular street foods, and many of them will answer yakisoba (Japanese stir-fried noodles).
The crepe is an iconic piece of French cuisine, often using the finest ingredients. But hop on over to Tokyo’s Harajuku area, and you’ll see plenty of people walking around and enjoying the Japanese spin on the dish.
Simple. Fast. Delicious. Chicken. Barbecue. There’s no better way to enjoy chicken than Yakitori. Think it’s just chicken on a skewer? Think again.
When thinking about Japanese soda flavors, one in particular is the most popular. We know what you’re thinking but no, it’s not radioactive green melon soda.
