After shopping around Omotesando, maybe you want to take a break.
There are wonderful shops along the street, however, today, we will introduce you“OMOTESANDO KOFFEE” as a special recommended spot.
You can reach here from ‘Omotesando Station’on Tokyo Metro Line for about 5 minutes on foot. First, go to the side road of ‘Apple Store Omotesando’ and then go to the back street of Ton-katsu Restaurant ‘Maisen.’(Ton-katsu is kind of fried pork.) You can find a cafe in a residential area.
But there is not an up-front signboard. This cafe is a traditional old folk house whose entrance is surrounded with green, so it is a little bit hard for you to find, but you must be very glad when you can reach here all the way.
This cafe is evaluated as a popular sightseeing spot in Tokyo by ‘tripadvisor, so a lot of Asian and European tourists visited here in spite of weekday.
A lamp surrounded the shade which looks like a hand-made, and a foliage plant inside of the shop. They are decorated really well, using the space which is called ‘Toko-no-ma.’ A Japanese-like foliage plant suits a Japanese style room.
Some souvenirs to be able to go are put beside the bay window and also the Japanese plant which is called ‘Bonsai’is also decorated casually. It is really good to be able to feel Japanese touch in such a casual place.
After ordering, the coffee staff makes each cups of coffee carefully. I ordered cold coffee. I hear the coffee beans are from an old coffee brand in Kyoto ‘Ogawa Coffee’ which was established in 1952.
