Great Scott! Japan Has Back To The Future Cafes

Great Scott! Japan Has Back to the Future Cafes

Not cafe, but cafes. Plural!

Yesterday was 21 October 2015. You know, BACK TO THE FUTURE DAY. And to mark the franchise's thirtieth anniversary, five (count 'em, five!) Back to the Future pop-up cafes have opened in Japan.

They're only for a limited time, but have BTTF themed food, drinks, and deserts. If the posters and memorabilia don't do it, the movie's soundtrack is constantly playing to ensure diners get in the mood.

The guy in the top image carrying the Hoverboard is TV personality and film critic Kon Arimura. He loves Back to the Future! (Check out his Twitter page and see what I mean.)

According to Cinema Today and Ameba, the cafe locations are Trattoria Paradiso in Tokyo as well as Sweets Paradise restaurants in Chiba, Osaka, Hyogo, and Okayama.

    I could go the cafe, but the music would drive me out of there faster than a Delorean on nitrous.

    Holy shit. I had dinner in that restaurant two weeks ago. It didn't have any of the cool BttF stuff in it.

    I saw the Delorean, but there's something like a classic car museum in that shopping centre, so It didn't click to me that it was for a promotion. There's a working, street registered Delorean that drives around the Makuhari area, not far from Tokyo. Wonder if this is the same one?

    Edit: This kind of temporary cafe thing is weirdly popular in Japan. When David Bowie released his comeback album, there was a Bowie Cafe in Tokyo for about 2 months.
