Whether you loved it or hated it, there’s no denying "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" was a huge cinematic event in 2019. And to commemorate the release of the ninth and final movie in the "Star Wars" Skywalker saga, a series of special Star Wars OH MY CAFE will open for a limited time in five locations across Japan — specifically Osaka, Tokyo, Nagoya, Hokkaido (Sapporo) and Fukuoka.

The cafe is designed to be a museum-like space with various conceptual art from the film series on display that allows fans to immerse themselves in the world of "Star Wars."
