OMOTESANDO KOFFEE


All above photographs were taken by me (with a permission from the shop owner of course - in case you wonder). If you are re-blogging any of these images please remember to give me credit, thank you :)

Good coffee makes me smile. So does an old Japanese house. So OMOTESANDO KOFFEE became my recent favourite coffee spot in Tokyo, naturally!

OMOTESANDO KOFFEE is a pop-up cafe opened earlier this year hidden in a backstreet of Omotesando, in a beautiful 80 years old Japanese house that is going to be demolished. (80 years old probably doesn't sound so old if you live outside Japan, but for us it is considered very old. Old buildings are very often knocked down and new ones are built in Japan - this is sad but you know this has got a lot to do with far-too-many earthquakes we have in this country!)

Anyway.... so this cafe is open only for one year (it opened sometime in January this year) which means if you are in Tokyo before January 2012 Apparently the owner of the building decided to postpone the demolishing of the building so it is still there!! but I don't know for how long so you should make sure to pay a visit whenever possible to enjoy a lovely cup of coffee made by one of the most famous baristas in Tokyo before it is gone! Well, I'm sure he will move to somewhere and serve more good coffee but this set up is definitely not to miss!

  2. Beautiful place, and it's hidden, like a hidden treasure. I like the room, with the bold line, it's like the barista have their own little rectangle space. so sad it won't be there forever.

  8. Oh, it looks such a special and refined place for coffee. It is sad to know it is only a temporary space. Enjoy it while you are able. If I find my way to Tokyo I will surely visit Omotesando Koffee.

  12. I think it's so neat that they opened up this cafe knowing it would close so soon, just to bring people to a cool old building and sharing this amazing space with people!
