If you ever find yourself in Tokyo on your travels, it’s worth exploring the new official Harry Potter Café, which is to help commemorate the franchise’s success in Japan, especially for fans of the iconic movie series.
The Akasaka Biz Tower, where the café is located, is currently embodying other elements of the Wizarding World, such as a staircase that has been converted to resemble the moving staircase in the franchise. Notably, the staircase connects the tower to the Akasaka ACT Theater, where the play will be performed in Japanese.
So whilst the cafe provides fans with souvenirs and Hogwarts-themed decor, we take a look at the food and drinks on offer:
First, the café offers scones with jams in the shapes of Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff, keeping with its British heritage. The traditional dinner of beans and toast has a Harry Potter twist; it’s called Platform 934 Beans. The Dragon’s Breath Roast Beef and the Owl Post Sunday Roast are some of the heartier snacks.
There is also meat-free Hedwig Cake, which is a dessert. The artistic dish depicts an owl with its beak clutching a Hogwarts acceptance letter.
There are also other potions available. Spells like “Expecto Patronum,” “Wingardium Leviosa,” “Stupify,” and “Herbivicus” are channelled into a variety of cocktails and mocktails, all boiling away beneath the surface to captivate your taste buds.
The magical café is a part of Warner Bros. Entertainment’s spectacular celebration of the July 8th launch of the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in Japan. In the meantime, the cafe is open as a soft launch. You can find out more via the site.
