Okami Pop-Up Cafe In Tokyo Brushes Up Themed Food And Drinks
A quick glance at review aggregates and best games lists online tend to agree that Capcom’s Okami is one of the best titles of the 21st century. The combination of the game’s beautifully cel-shaded graphics and motion controls that seek to replicate traditional Japanese ink-wash painting techniques made Okami a unique instant classic in the minds of its players. A more recent trend for praising game franchises has been the specialty cafe, which has been prevalent in Japan with venues like a Sailor Moon pop-up and a Pokemon cafe. Now, a new Okami pop-up cafe has opened that brushes up some great food and drinks.
Information about the Okami pop-up cafe has been released on Capcom’s official website. The publisher teamed up with Pasera Resorts to open up the new cafe that sells Okami-themed food and alcoholic/non-alcoholic drinks. Some of the dishes include an Hanasaki Mochi Sakura Tofu Salad and Tsuzurao’s rosary parfait. Among the drinks are an alcoholic Amaterasu Yogurito and a Queen Himiko soft drink.
Any dish or drink at the cafe comes with one of three exclusive Okami placemats showing either Amaterasu or the game’s map. Also available for purchase at the pop-up are Okami can badges and beverage tumblers. The Okami pop-up is open now until August 29th at the Pacera Resorts AKIBA Multi-Entertainment (2F Cafe Space). This is quite a lovely celebration of Amaterasu’s story, and fans should definitely check this out before the pop-up washes away like ink on a canvas after a rainstorm.
