'My Little Pony' Themed Café Opens in Japan

As a culture, the Japanese love to celebrate pop culture in some pretty unique ways. Now, one restauranteur in the Tokyo, Japan's Harajuku neighborhood (home to the famed Harajuku clothing style) has created a way for fans of "My Little Pony" to share in their equestrian obsession over a cup of coffee or some marshmallow and banana chocolate chip pancakes by opening the world's first "My Little Pony" theme café (via MentalFloss).

This nostalgic eatery isn't just  decorated in bright colors and pictures of Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle, though. Everything at the café has some sign of "My Little Pony", from the "I Want  a Pony" message burnt into the toast to the little card stuck in the pork and orange cheese pancake. Even the latte features a pony design sprinkled right on top. And what would a theme shop be without souvenirs? Collectors can pick up limited edition merchandise like keychains, tote bags, and notebooks all decorated with your favorite ponies. What's more, there's an actual, real live pony waiting outside to greet new customers.

Unfortunately, the doors to the café will only be open for a limited time, with the final day of business being November 29. If that's too short notice for you to book your flight to Japan, take solace in living vicariously through the plethora of images that have shown up on twitter. Check them out below (via Rocknews24). You can also visit the café's own website.
