Gundam cafe opens up next to statue in Shizuoka

I hope they have Mobile Suit Pocky


If you're going to make a pilgrimage to see an enormous Gundam statue, it may be that by the time you get there, you may be thirsty, Or hungry. These are things to take into consideration. However, Japan has thought ahead. If you missed the giant Gundam statue on its previous appearance, you can now see it again as it is on display in Shizouka. And just like before, you can visit the Gundam Cafe, which has been erected nearby so onlookers don't go hungry.
 
It's also worth mentioning that there is a Gundam factory in Shizuoka, so maybe you can pick up a Gunpla or two to go along with your snacks. Just maybe!

Japan is going Gundam crazy!
Now I want them to make a K-on and Strike witches theme cafe.

Oh man, I love the "Jaburo Blend" coffee they're serving there. Jaburo, for those that don't know, is the fictional Earth Federation's secret base located in Brazil.

I wish I could afford to go there and visit both the Gundam and the Cafe.
