For those who don’t know, Moomin is a popular Finnish cartoon character that has a huge fan-base in Japan (for reasons unknown — but probably because he’s cute looking).

In Japan, the character is so popular that there’s a cafe called The Moomin House Cafe where you can go and eat and drink and be merry. But what if you’re going alone? No worries! The cafe offers lonely visitors the option to sit with a Moomin for free in an enticing move to keep customers in the cafe for longer! How nice.
