Here’s a little write-up on What’s Good about….my japanese hometown!
Cool spots Tip #1 — Cafe your way?
Cafes in Japan are for more than just drinking coffee, tea, reading, and internet browsing. Cafes can be highly specialized to suit personal interests….as shown by the variety of cafes highlighted on this week’s episode of the NHK WORLD program TOKYO EYE. Check out the sample of highly specialized cafes below — that have an english/bilingual website — OR see the links to ALL of the cafes which were featured on this week’s episode of TOKYO EYE by clicking on → cool cafes!
FabCafe in shibuya
Patrons can FABricate personalized items — ranging from notebooks to cookie cutters — using the cafe’s laser cutting machine and 3D printer.
PURE CAFE in aoyama, tokyo
Good eats made from locally sourced ingredients. Oh,the food just happens to be vegan + gluten-free as well. though savory dishes were sampled on the show, here are the desserts i want to try simply based on the reactions of the program reporters: tiramisu, cheesecake & lemon pie!
This last cafe’s website is mainly in japanese but it’s too “highly specialized” & purpose-driven to leave out.
鷹匠茶屋•FALCONER’S CAFE in mitaka, tokyo
Ok…This website is NOT IN ENGLISH — with the exception of section headings — which means using ‘google translate’ or rikaichan/rikaikun may be in order. however, i just had to include it…for all of the animal lovers! here, one can enjoy a spot of tea and pet an owl or hold a falcon while the rest of the on-site wildlife calmly looks on while perched in various spots around the cafe. WHAT A CONCEPT!
