Kyoto’s latest hotspot is ‘Tea House Hello Kitty Saryo’ – a collaboration between a Japanese Style Tea House and Hello Kitty, where people of all ages and from all corners of the world can now come to enjoy traditional Japanese cuisine Hello Kitty-style.
The tea house is open from 10.30am-5.30pm and sells countless Kitty treats. From every day dim sum decorated with Hello Kitty stamps to matcha green tea lattes with the famous face on the foam, Hello Kitty fans can rest assured that everything served here comes complete with its very own nod to the 40-year-old character. What’s more, a visit needn’t break the bank with Hello Kitty cakes costing as little as £2.45 per cake at this newly-opened cafe.
For mega-fans of the iconic character, the Hello Kitty immersion can continue after the cakes and delicacies have been consumed. A visit to the craft shop next door to the cafe is a must where visitors can browse a host of Hello Kitty memorabilia including traditional Japanese tea pots, tote bags, clothing and stationary.
