KAYABA coffee in Tokyo's Yanaka neighbourhood.

Absolutely unlike anywhere else. Kayaba Coffee in East Tokyo’s Yanaka neighbourhood, located just by the renowned Scai The Bathhouse Gallery, created by the same visionary owner Masami Shiraishi. Originally built in 1916, KAYABA Coffee is a classic Japanese kissaten, renovated by architect Yuko Nagayama who retained the coffeehouses’ original charm. With a casual lunch menu, or the traditional Japanese sweet anmitsu desserts.
