In a galaxy far, far away—it was the holiday season? That might not be exactly how the story goes but this winter you can have a whole new Star Wars experience in Tokyo while waiting for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker movie to release in theaters December 20. Don’t sit around waiting for the conclusion of the Skywalker saga when you could be inside the festive world of Star Wars in the middle of Tokyo or dining at the Rise Crystal Cafe for a Star Wars meal.
Visit the Marunouchi area from November 7 to December 25 for a truly out of this world time. Stars Wars fans of all ages will want to get in on the limited-time area Star Wars Marunouchi Bright Christmas and the Rise Crystal Café. This special pop-up café will only be around a short time before it disappears like Obi Wan’s ghost.
Open for lunch from 11 am and dinner from 4 pm on weekdays (10 am/5 pm on weekends and holidays), this Star Wars-themed café has everything you need to enjoy the holiday and get hyped for the new film. Try a light side or dark side parfait, or perhaps some Kylo Ren-inspired pasta, although it’s hard to beat the cuteness of the R2-D2 Galaxy Present Sandwich set.
After getting your fill of whichever side of the Force you choose, head over to the Christmas tree-inspired Star Wars art piece . . . or is it a Star Wars-themed Christmas tree? You’ll have to be the judge as you stand at the base of this modern Christmas tree. It’s a perfectly romantic spot for Star Wars-loving couples or a fun place to find R2-D2 Santa for photos with the kids!
Other shops in the area will also be having a Star Wars fair of original goods you won’t be able to find anywhere else, not even smuggled on board the Millennium Falcon. Act fast and you’ll satisfy even the pickiest Star Wars fans on your holiday shopping list with everything from towels, earrings, rings, hoodies, totes, t-shirts, and more!
