SYCAMORE TOWNSHIP, Ohio — An iconic Japanese feline's cafe on wheels will once again visit Cincinnati.

The touring Hello Kitty Cafe Truck will return to the Kenwood Towne Centre from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday. The truck visited the town center for its first time on April 28, 2018.

Once again, the cafe will be parked near the Cheesecake Factory at 7875 Montgomery Road.

For those who shopped the truck last year, the cafe will once again have plenty of Hello Kitty cookies, packet pies, macarons, stainless-steel thermos bottles, bow-shaped water bottles, headbands, keychains and T-shirts for purchase.

There will be new items, such as a limited-edition "sprinkle" T-shirt, a new four-piece mini-cake set and new sequin bow headband.

The Hello Kitty Cafe Truck started touring the United States in October 2014. Since that time, two Hello Kitty trucks have visited more than 60 cities in the United States.

Japanese company Sanrio created Hello Kitty more than 40 years ago. The feline has since spawned a worldwide group of fans and a nearly infinite line of Hello Kitty merchandise that includes plush toys, apparel and home decor. The Hello Kitty Cafe Truck is Sanrio's first food-related venture
