    I love this place! A lot of cool Japanese art stores inside. The cinema downstairs is awesome! I love going to place for their free movie screenings. Go to their website on how you can watch them.

    They're really pushing the Harajuku & EGL themed items. The gift shop is now condensed to showcase more of said items & the coffee shop is now a Harajuku themed cafe. Not the same vibe anymore.

    Great cafe, not much of a cold drink selection. Watch out for the spotty Wifi, otherwise, great place to chill.
