Going on a cafe date is a common practice for many adults, but Sendai’s BLUE LEAF CAFÉ is now offering a limited-time event that will help visitors enjoy a different kind of company. Rather than sitting across from a real-life person at the cafe, visitors will be able to go on a virtual date with animated Japanese idol Hatsune Miku.
For the event, the cafe will be outfitted with Lenovo Phab 2 Pro smartphones, which will allow consumers to make the virtual pop star appear before their eyes using Miku Stroll software. As part of the limited-time cafe event, diners will be able to order from a secret menu that features special sandwiches, cakes, soda and even a latte decorated with the image of Miku.
To help consumers remember the event after their virtual date has ended, BLUE LEAF CAFÉ is pairing orders with special-edition coasters and will be offering commemorative merchandise for purchase.
