“Good varieties of coffee beans & roasts but out of the way.”

Blue Bottle Coffee Kiyosumi Shirakawa Roastery & Cafe
Ranked #1 of 167 Coffee & Tea in Koto
Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 July 2017

Tokyo in recent years has seen a plethora of specialty coffee roasters (and also coffee specialty cafes.) This is one. It is basically a warehouse facility with a few folding chairs to sit (if lucky) and sip but quite hard to find on a side street off Kiyosumi main street. It's a good hike (15 minutes) from the Kiyosumi-Shirakawa subway station on the Oedo line. If in the neighbourhood, it's worth a stop. The main attraction is to stock up less frequently available types of beans and roast. There are quite a few other attractions nearby (kiyosumi Gardens, Fukukawa museum, Tokyo Contemporary Art Museum, a winery and innumerable small Japanese style restaurants and coffee shops.

Remotely located in the quiet hipster neighborhood of Kiyosumi Shirakawa..it's a place to chill over a cup of good coffee. We came here in late noon and the place was already crowded with both locals and tourist alike! Next day for a quick cuppa..we head to Shinjuku branch instead ;)

Such a cool coffee shop in the middle of a residential area. It's very hipster and that can come with a coat around ¥540 for a cappuccino. But it has a great atmosphere clean and the staff are very helpful.

Quite the mission but coffee is great, if your a coffee guy it's worth it. Otherwise don't bother. Would have liked more seating.

You will have a wonderful cup of coffee here even though it is not cheap. It is, however, well worth it if you enjoy premium quality coffee. It is located in a warehouse area not too far from Kiyosumi Shirakawa park (koen). It is sometimes crowded with tourists, so some patience is required with all the photo taking. Not a place to hang out and relax.
