A limited-time pop-up cafe dedicated to all things Sumikko Gurashi is taking place at the Harajuku Box cafe & space until January 17th 2021.

Advance reservations can be made on the official website here, and each reserved session is for an 80 minute timeslot. Walk-ins to the cafe are subject to availability on the day.
The Harajuku Box cafe & space is located approximately five minutes on foot from the JR Harajuku Station (served by the Yamanote Line), or around three minutes on foot from Exit 5 of the Tokyo Metro Meijijingumae Station (served by the Chiyoda Line and the Fukutoshin Line).
