Tokyo Cafes: Tokyo Dome City Moomin Bakery & Cafe

The Moomin cafe at Tokyo Dome City in Kourakuen
The Finnish cartoon character Moomin is extremely popular in Japan. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Swedish-Finnish creator Tove Jansson, and we can probably expect to see a lot of the little white troll in Japan in the coming year as well.



In Japan you can find the Moomintroll and his friends almost anywhere, for instance in the form of cute products or in commercials on TV. At the entertainment city Tokyo Dome City, which is located close to where I live, they even have a Moomin Bakery & Café. Here you can buy Nordic-inspired pastries, and the café itself is of course also inspired by Nordic architecture.

A little while ago my dad was visiting me in Tokyo, and one of the things we did during his stay was having a breakfast together at the Moomin Bakery. If you visit the cafe by yourself there is however no need to feel lonely; you can always enjoy the company of one of the cafe's giant stuffed animals.

Adventures ofAnette


The classical story about a girl who went for a one-year exchange program to Japan, fell in love and got stuck there. Starting out as a student in Kyoto in 2010 I now work full-time in Tokyo as a hotel consultant, and write mostly about my travels, working life in Japan as well as a bunch of random stuff.
