The juxtaposition of this unusual cafe amidst the sleaze of the neighborhood is fantastic. It is certainly one of those very rare places that seems to exist out of space and time, and in doing so is unique in its sheer stubborn refusal to capitulate to the same tired old contemporary themes of every other coffee shop.

This place is unbelievable and it seems like it's coming out of the past. This is a traditional old style Japanese coffee place that is all about classical music.

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

Neighbourhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
