The winter months in Japan can get quite cold – especially in certain parts of the country – but thankfully there are a number of inventive ways to keep warm. One of them is the kotatsu, a low wooden table covered with a heavy blanket and with a heating element underneath it. Cozying up under one of these is the perfect way to battle chilly days, and for a limited-time, Nescafe Harajuku will be incorporating kotatsu at a fun pop-up café event.

The Nescafe Kotatsu Café runs from November 26th until December 12th, and guests can snuggle up and enjoy coffee and their choice of several desserts including a mandarin orange ice cream daifuku, a cat-shaped ice cream cake, or a mandarin orange sorbet.

Seating in the café is limited to 16 people, so depending on the time you visit you may have to wait for a table to open up.

Getting there

The Nescafe Harajuku store is located just two minutes on foot from Harajuku Station, which is served by the JR Yamanote Line.
