I couldn’t help feeling that this was some kind of sick joke when I heard this, considering Japan’s ongoing woes with radiation fears and the current debate over nuclear energy.
But yes, according to this computer gaming website, a Biohazard Cafe in Grill will be opening in Tokyo on July 13. The restaurant will open in Parco Part 1 in Shibuya.
And for anyone like me who doesn’t know that Biohazard is actually referring to a computer game, you can read about it on Wikipedia:
Resident Evil, known as Biohazard (バイオハザード Baiohazādo?) in Japan, is a media franchise owned by the video game company Capcom. It was created by Shinji Mikami as a survival horror game series that was initiated with the eponymous PlayStation title Resident Evil in 1996. Since then, the game series has branched out to include action games, and has sold 49 million units as of March 2012.
The Resident Evil media franchise has been expanded to comic books, novels and novelizations, sound dramas, live-action and computer-generated feature films, and a variety of collectibles, such as action figures and strategy guides.
