Korilakkuma Café

A Dreamy Day at Korilakkuma Café

In January I visited Tokyo again for a special reason: the Korilakkuma Café in Harajuku! And of course for spending time with my bf, shopping, eating… but the main point was visiting the cute and fluffy restaurant that opened for a limited time next to Takeshita street!

The difficult part was making the reservation that is needed to enter the café. The website is in Japanese and they had no intention on welcoming foreign visitors as they request a Japanese (somehow Korean worked as well but my German one didn’t) phone number and address in Japan. Also they asked for writing your name in Kana which is a little awkward if you don’t have a Japanese name and they try to call you. Somehow I made two reservation back in Dezember for the 31.01. and 01.02. The café will close at 15.02. and you need to reserve at least 3 days before your actual visit. Also I had to pay for only making the reservation, it was around 20€.

When I was in Tokyo earlier I tried to enter without reservation hoping someone cancelled but they wouldn’t let you in even if it would be the case.

The café was decorated with pink and pastel color themed pictures of Korilakkuma. Everywhere were some Korilakkuma and Rilakkuma dolls and even the windows were decorated with Korilakkuma Stickers. When you enter the cafe the staff hands out the towel that you get with every reservation and guides you to your seat with a postcard, a coaster and a paper dinner mat with Korilakkuma Café Logo on the table waiting for you. You might get sleepy after a while because they played songs in the background that sounded like coming out of a small music box. The whole atmosphere was just like the theme in the cafe: Sweet dream of Korilakkuma.


The staff was very friendly, even if they couldn’t speak English at all (and I mean at all, not even yes or no) but they tried to explain everything in Japanese since I could understand a little and speak enough to answer easy sentences. They served all the food with typical Japanese manner.

The menu included a few Japanese dishes, drinks and desserts, all with Korilakkuma faces and some even with fluffy candy cotton on top! You can look up the menu on their website. They even offer the cute candy cotton for take out!


While you are waiting for your order, they where calling each table for a visit at the shop corner to get some Korilakkuma Café merch. Sadly all the plush toys where sold out but I got some cute other things there like a linen shopping bag and key charms. Actually I was looking for the Korilakkuma’s sweet dream collection in every Rilakkuma store by everything was sold out already. ㅠㅠ (if you know an internet shop where I can find it please let me know immediatelyㅠㅠ)

The first time we visited was around dinner time so we ordered the curry and the burger. Also I got the strawberry milk and my bf the fluffy strawberry soda.




The next day we came around early lunch time and I had the creamy cheese soup and my bf got the curry again, I guess he saw how I was struggling with the burger bun the day before xD as a dessert I ordered the chocolate lava cake covered in cotton candy and my bf the berry pancakes. I got a cup of caramel latte, too. They were just as Korilakkuma very sweet. I have to admit I was about to explode after I almost finished all. I really felt like a monster eating two dishes but for most of the Japanese visitors it was totally fine to just order everything on the menu (and completely emptying the plates!). The food was very yummy and really cute to look at.

Now I wrote down everything with kind of a… neutral mind but..  OMG IT WAS SO CUTE AND FLUFFY!! (● ˃̶͈̀ロ˂̶͈́)੭ꠥ⁾⁾ and I had the best time ever in there while eating yummy things next to a hundred Korilakkuma dolls. When I think back I could cry, it was like I entered a small hidden place straight out of heaven even though for most of the people it would be just another pop up café haha. I will show you the stuff I posted on my Instagram, so come and say hello there~

Oh and if you are currently in Japan, don’t miss the cute rilakkuma sweets they sell at Lawson!

Hope I didn’t make you too envy with this post (๑˃̵ᴗ˂̵) hihi just kidding.. But I wish I have the opportunity to go to such a cute café again soon (*´-`)

Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Honey & Milk Lip Care

Rilakuma x A’PIEU Honey & Milk Lip Care Products!

Hello everyone! I am back with new products! A’PIEU just launched a new range of the cute Rilakkuma x A’PIEU products and of course I was right there when they opened two days ago! I already tried some of the products already! I wrote this post with my app so no cute pixel pics 。゚(゚´ω`゚)゚。

The main point of this series is lip care! 6 of their products are lip products. I got the Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Honey and Milk lip balm, scrub and sleeping pack and the set of 3 hand balm and 3 shades of the lip tints. All the packages are so cute!

Today I will write something about the three lip care products! 

As you may noticed, the lip care products have all the Rilakkuma as a Bee motives on it so you can guess what it smells like!

The products smell slightly sweet, I would say like honey! Since the weather is so cold my lips are so dry and I warmly welcomened these products! I tried all of the products once (since I just got them yesterday) and I think they have some potential to become my new favorite products for my lip care!

First I tested the lip scrub. I actually only tried lip scrub in my life because I always had small injuries after using it and it was rather harmful for my sensitive skin on my lips than helpful. You apply it on your lips and massage the scrub onto them. After a while you wipe it off or use lukewarm water and get soft lips. I just used it for a few seconds and after I removed the scrub my lips were rosy red and soft. I don’t know yet what will be the long term effect but for rosy and slightly fuller lips the scrub is actually not bad. What makes the difference to other lip scrubs? I guess just the package.


I applied the lip balm right after and first I noticed the sweet gentle smell of honey. Just a light hint of honey, not too sweet as most of the fragranced lip balms tend to. The lip balm is clear, more solid and not too fatty, the case of accidentally putting on too much balm can’t happen with this one. I like how light it feels while it’s giving moisture.

The sleeping mask has to be on your lips -as the name says – while you sleep, applied before you go to bed. I used it for one night and when I woke up the product was all gone and I wonder if it is my fault by sleeping on my tummy with my face in the pillow or if my lips absorbed all the product. In this case the result would be very negative. My lips were quite dry today and I have some painful cracks on my lips. The cold weather harms my lips and I really need some cure for it! I will give it another chance and will use it again tonight and hope I will not smudge it in my pillow this time. Also I actually were asking myself what is the difference between putting on this sleeping mask and using lip balm before going to bed.

All the products are really cute and not too expensive, but if you are really taking care of what you get for how much money then you can probably find cheaper and better quality ones. But if you like the honey smell and the cute Rilakkuma then I would at least recommend the lip balm as a must have in this collection! (╹◡╹)
