Rilakkuma: Tower Records Rilakkuma Cafe

I had a quick trip to Tokyo at the weekend, just 18 hours!! I met with Sarah, Sarah and Aviva and we went to the Tower Records Rilakkuma Cafe in Shibuya.

It opened at 10am, and we arrived a little after that, we arrived from the right hand side of the shop, and looking at the cafe on the second floor we were surprised it didn’t look full. The sign said it was the exit of the cafe so we walked all the way around to the other side, then spotted people sitting on stools by the entrance. We turned the corner and there were more people, around that corner were more people queuing up the stairs….and more….and more…! Omg. The queue ended on the 3.5F staircase. There were about 75 people in front of us.

It’s a good job we love you Rilakkuma!



The queue move steadily, and despite the heat and our hunger we made it to the front of the line 2 hours later!



In the cafe!



The cafe itself is already nice and it was lightly decorated with Rilakkuma posters, banners and plain plushies of different sizes. Personally I would have liked more Rilakkuma!


I ordered the curry alone for ¥1500 as did Sarah, and Aviva and Sarah got the cake set. The cake came straight away almost and the curry not long after.




He’s relaxing in a sea of curry sauce on an omelette pillow! He tasted pretty nice, an average curry rice with added cuteness.


There was an hour limit for tables, so we didn’t hang around much after eating and we had to get to the tea party with Misako Aoki for dessert!

  1. How awesome that looks, I want to go. Hopefully soon! Wow but an hour limit kinda got to eat fast XD but I understand because many people want to go eat there. Lovely pictures everything looks so good!

    • I think an hour is ok, there isn’t that much to eat anyway, the staff weren’t turning the tables around v fast and there were lots of empty seats even though there was a really long queue! Have a great time when you go, I hope the wait is shorter for you! I look fwd to seeing your post about it!x

  2. Wow, super super cute!! Good to hear Rilakkuma tasted pretty nice too hahahaha. Do you remember what the eyes/ears/belly/nose were made out of? Thanks a ton for posting these photos with the writeup – it feels like I’m right there too!
