A newly announced Hatsune Miku cafe “Hatsune Miku MUSIC CAFÉ” has just opened in Akihabara, where one of the main services here is an all-you-can-request music service supported by KarenT, Crypton Future Media’s own record label. Located at onion AniON STATION in Akihabara, the Hatsune Miku MUSIC CAFÉ will be up and running until October 21st.

Original collaboration menus, beverages, and goods featuring the key visual by the artist Kisaragi Yuu are also available under a small entrance fee of 500 yen per person. Nearby the entrance of the cafe is a life-size Hatsune Miku statue from Hatsune Miku: Magical Mirai in 2014~2016. Additionally, the cafe also has its very own theme song titled SENSITIVE SUMMER by the group “ZLMS” (now available on iTunes).

Below are some tweets from fans on the cafe as well as its recently held opening DJ event.
