For reasons unknown to me, many seem to admire modern Japanese anime cartoons, comics, illustrations, etc. Part of the nature of living in Japan is that over the years you get used to the fact that you’ll see and hear about a lot of unique places and things catering to niche markets that you’d be unlikely to find anywhere else in the world at that moment. One of these things is anime cafés.
Where else would you find curry with partially blue rice made to look like a cartoon face or pita sandwiches with similar colorful decorations? Crazy!
