One of Japan’s major real estate listing sites, SUUMO (http://suumo.jp), has recently opened up a promotional cafe in Ginza.
The cafe shares the space of the R25 Cafe on the 1st floor of the Recruit Ginza 7 Chome Building (see google map here). They are selling various sweets and drinks featuring the Suumo character (a green alien) including hot cocoa, muffins and cider. Prices range from 330 – 500 Yen.
The theme of the cafe is the Suumo space alien’s own living room. Visitors to the cafe and followers on Twitter will be given calendars and other promotional presents. Customers will also be able to use the cafe’s iPads to access Suumo applications and to browse the Suumo website.
The cafe is only temporary and will be open until January 31, 2012.
