A café where you can eat surrounded by 250 Barbie Dolls would be a Barbie fan’s dream. As a matter of fact, such a place opened in February, 2015 in Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, called “Pink Holiday.”

Owned by one Ms. Hisano Ise, she tells us, “I wanted to help people understand the greatness of Barbie.” The café’s most popular dish, ordered by 80% of its customers, is its “Doll Cake,” in which a Barbie doll’s dress is made of cake. It’s a popular surprise for birthdays and other occasions.

There is also a box where you can act like you’re a Barbie doll, a makeup room, Barbie accessories, and everything Barbie. The owner has 200 dolls she keeps outside the café, which she switches out every season. One way to enjoy the café might be to check it out several times and discover a new doll each time.

Speaking of Barbie, the most famous doll ever made, did you know that her real name is Barbara Millicent Roberts? If you're a hardcore fan you probably already knew this, so here's another tricky question for you: do you know when is Barbie's birthday? You give up? It's March 9, 1959. Despite being "born" in the fifties, this cute doll is still ridiculously popular all around the globe, and according to the video, it has a massive cult in Japan.
