Do you ever wish that you could hang out with your favorite WeChat stickers in real life? Would you like to enjoy an overpriced latte with them? Then Kuma Café is for you. The store-and-cafe dedicated to Japanese mascot Kumamon features more photo ops than any sane person would have time for – but if there’s one thing this cafe and purveyor of RMB100 Kumamon phone cases proves, it’s that we, as a society, have all gone raving mad. Enjoy taking a photo of your Kumamon cake – because that’s pretty much all it’s good for.
