Singapore Fujiwara Tofu Concept Shop Opens In Late February
The iconic Fujiwara Tofu Shop may have started off fictional but it’s all very real now. A concept shop bistro based on famed manga and anime series Initial D will be opening in Singapore in February.
The themed café, located at Sims Avenue, will allow customers to step into the world of protagonist Takumi Fujiwara.
And local fans can’t wait to visit. In the past week, many have visited the store to snap some pictures of the café and its cars, also based on the manga.
The store has had so many visitors that they even issued an advisory warning drivers that the turn into the store is tight.
Fujiwara Tofu concept shop located along Sims Avenue
On Thursday (19 Jan), the Fujiwara Tofu Concept Shop Singapore made its first Instagram post, announcing that they will be opening in late February.
In the caption, the store was described as a place for ‘car buddies’ to hang out and will offer “finger food, drinks, and merch”.
The quaint store with the iconic signboard that looks right out of ‘Initial D’ is located along Sims Avenue, next to the Nichiren Shōshū Buddhist Association. There’s a small carpark beside the café.
A sneak peak from 23 Jan showed the store’s decor featuring the Akina SpeedStars, a team featured in Initial D.
Some merchandise can be seen hanging on racks and several tables have also been set up by the windows.
The Singapore Fujiwara Tofu Concept Shop is reportedly a venture by a car enthusiast, Charwin Tan.
Becomes photo spot for fans
In the past week, automobile and ‘Initial D’ fans flocked to the concept shop, eager to capture a photo of their vehicle outside the Fujiwara Tofu Shop storefront.
Some days, the store is already so popular that the carpark appeared to be full.
And it seems that even riders want to join in on the fun, snapping pictures of their motorcycles in front of the Fujiwara Tofu Concept Shop.
The store said they are “totally cool” with people taking photos in front of their shopfront.
But they warned that the turn into the store is tight and advised motorists to only do reverse parking.
