Moomin Cafe @ Tokyo Dome

The Moomins (Swedish: Mumintroll) are the central characters in a series of books and a comic strip by Swedish-speaking Finnish illustrator and writer Tove Jansson, originally published in Swedish by Schildts[2] in Finland. They are a family of white, roundish fairy tale characters with large snouts that make them resemble hippopotamuses.

I fell in love with Moomins’ soft toys when I first saw them in Singapore. Since I was in Japan, I thought I should visit Moomin Cafe since I am exploring Tokyo alone. I went to Tokyo Dome Cafe outlet.

They would shift the soft toys around and I was so happy when Moomin Mama sat beside me. I had to take a selfie with her. She had quite a big face though, had to try a few times to fit in the small frame.

Well, the food is secondary. To be honest, the food was not to my liking. I was so excited when they had Moomin Milk Tea. I ordered and was really disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, the presentation of the food is good. The taste, too salty to my liking.

The place is really well thought. They even provide different types of bread.

I was there on a weekday but it was crowded. There were teachers bringing the kids out. Mummies gathering with kids. Young girls, young couples and solo traveler like myself.

I guess I had too much expectation for Moomin cafe… However, visit the cafe for the fun of it. They provide great service. Just don’t expect much about the food.

Visit Moomin Japanese website for all the list of cafes & shops. They provide all the information.
