The Tamiya family café is a combination of a café and a model merchandise store. Inside the store, there is a resting area where you can enjoy food and beverage, and a model sales corner that sells plastic models, RC cars, and mini 4W D items. On the side of the store is a track for a mini-car game.
An official from Korea’s Tamiya said, “This is the first time a model restaurant and a cafe have been combined in Korea.”
To celebrate the opening of the Family Cafe in Korea, Tamiya Korea sells a Tamiya model at a 10% discount, and offers a mug with a Tamiya logo on shoppers over 50,000 won.
