Last month, a monochrome cafe opened in Tokyo’s Shin-Okubo neighborhood. Called the 2D Cafe, it looks like a manga drawing brought to life.

A 2D Cafe opened in South Korea a few years back, quickly becoming a popular spot to grab snacks and take Instagram photos. This latest 2D cafe in Tokyo is not connected to that original cafe. 

Since all the decor in the cafe is flat and colorless, cute desserts and drinks really stand out. Ditto for the customers.

It reminds me of the “Take on Me” video. 

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.

Which is not bad as long as the waiters don’t have a choppy animation.

Which reminds me, what happened to the XIII “Remake”?
