The Art of Dining at Ginza Rakugaki Cafe and Bar by Pentel

On June 2nd, one of Japan’s best known stationary companies, Pentel, opened a unique cafe in Tokyo called “GINZA RAKUGAKI Cafe & Bar by Pentel“. “Rakugaki” means scribbling or doodling in Japanese. And as you might have guessed, customers can draw anything they wish, anywhere in this cafe. Using Pentel’s stationary, patrons can scribble on the floor, the tables, pillars, walls, doors and even on the windows. This sounds fantastic, especially for those who have been reproved by their parents for scribbling on the walls or furniture during childhood 😉 On the cafe’s Instagram page, you can see a lot of “rakugaki” created by the customers –>

GINZA RAKUGAKI Cafe & Bar offers delicious, artfully presented fare as well.  Have a look at these beautiful and artistic offerings in the pictures below! I love the idea of the french fry plate with seven colorful sauces. It looks similar to a painter’s palette 🙂 Oh, wait. This just popped into my head now as I write this, but I wonder; is drawing on the tableware also OK?? Hmmm.
