  • (upbeat music)

  • - Hey guys, good morning.

  • I'm in Canal City in the center of the Fukuoka City.

  • Canal City is the name of the mall.

  • Fukuoka is the name of the city.

  • Canal City is a really popular shopping mall.

  • It's one that I really like coming to

  • even as a resident of Fukuoka City,

  • because the architecture is really interesting.

  • They do have a little canal

  • flowing through the shopping mall.

  • When you're visiting Fukuoka as a tourist,

  • Canal City is one of the in my opinion,

  • one of the must see spots

  • just because it has a really good concentration of shops

  • that I think tourists would be interested in.

  • There's tons of character shops, select shops.

  • There's so much going on here.

  • And it really is worth a visit

  • if you are planning an itinerary through Fukuoka City.

  • This is the Gundam Base in Fukuoka,

  • that just opened up in November.

  • And behind me there's the Gundam Cafe as well.

  • A lot of places outside Tokyo

  • aren't as lucky as Fukuoka to get those attractions.

  • But we have quite a few.

  • And today, we're gonna head to

  • the Kirby Cafe (electronic beeping)

  • the Kirby Cafe, I'm really excited about

  • because my boyfriend is a huge fan of Kirby.

  • And I know that they're only here to the end of this month.

  • So I really want to take him before they close.

  • And that's where we're going right now.

  • (upbeat music)

  • The Kirby Cafe menu has a variety of different options

  • for the ultimate Kirby fan to try,

  • from mains such as burgers and curry,

  • to desserts like mousse and pancakes.

  • Just looking through the menu front to back,

  • is really entertaining on its own.

  • Depending on the menu item,

  • you might even get to keep a souvenir plate,

  • figurine, mug or jar.

  • Even the drinks come with a special Kirby coaster

  • that you're encouraged to take home.

  • (upbeat music)

  • This is my Kirby dessert plate.

  • It's a mousse.

  • It's a strawberry mousse Kirby,

  • with strawberry jam, whipped cream and some fruit.

  • I do love that Kirby's wearing his chef's hat right here.

  • It's as if he is serving himself to me on this plate.

  • (upbeat music)

  • (typewriter clicks)

  • (electronic bleeping)

  • - [Boyfriend] How do you rate that?

  • - I think, for what it is, I really like it.

  • But I think, when you come to a character cafe,

  • you have to come because you like the characters

  • and not because you like the food.

  • It's not that the food's terrible,

  • it's just that there's not really anything

  • that they do particularly well.

  • It's not like anything that you eat is gonna be

  • the best thing you've ever tasted.

  • But it is gonna look really cute.

  • It's gonna be an adventure

  • because of the presentation,

  • because of the ideas, the creativity.

  • And if you eat with your eyes, that it's a good meal.

  • Yeah, I like this dessert.

  • I think it was a good balance of everything.

  • It had cake and mousse and fruit and whipped cream

  • and ice cream.

  • So I'm super-satisfied with it,

  • and it's really cute.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - [Boyfriend] The tree.

  • - [Micaela] Yeah, you can buy the tree.

  • You can buy these special plates.

  • You can get one of these.

  • This one's really cute.

  • It's a mug with a lid.

  • So you could put soup in there

  • or I don't know, tea, coffee.

  • So can I ask you a question?

  • - [Boyfriend] Yeah.

  • - [Micaela] How would you rate the Kirby Cafe?

  • - I thought it was a good laugh.

  • I enjoyed it.

  • (laughing)

  • It's like watching people get a coffee cup

  • that has a nice print on the top,

  • of them smiling-- - Getting excited.

  • - [Boyfriend] And all that.

  • Yeah, I mean, it's a good experience.

  • It generally, it's like good vibes in there.

  • It's like we're there for the vibes.

  • - [Micaela] Yeah, that's a good way to put it.
