Don’t want to eat alone? Here’s a solution …

Love the Moomins? Got no friends? No problem – A Japanese restaurant has it all covered.

Tokyo’s Moomin Café will enhance your lonely dining experience by seating a giant stuffed Moomin opposite you.

And as if chowing down on Moomin-themed cuisine whilst gazing into the dead eyes of a top-hat sporting hippopotamus weren’t enchanting enough – after that you can pick up Moomin pastries or drop some cash in the gift shop, (because life would just feel empty without that Moomin cutlery set and mobile phone charm.)

(As Google’s endearing translation from Japanese to English reads: “It is a greedy space with combined three elements “bakery”, “cafe” and “goods shop”.)

Plus on arrival, you can expect to be personally greeted by Moomintroll, Snorkmaiden or Moominpapa, with a spokesman telling RocketNews24:“Guests… are welcomed by the Moomin family.”

The Moomins are the brainchild of Finnish artist Tove Jansson and the adventures of Moominmama, The Hattifatteners and Snufkin continue to delight adults and children alike. (Huff Post)
