Konnichiwa! It’s Mr. Wada back on duty desu. I would like to introduce a container cafe called Machi-Koba Cafe in Nichinan this time.
Container Cafe: Machi-Koba Cafe in Nichinan
First of all, I didn’t know why it is called Machi (town) Koba (workshop / factory). It was just listed by online search. As we got to the place it made all sense. The name was a big hint!
A cafe in a factory huh? We need to investigate. Let’s take a look around.
Containers for Rent
While waiting for our drinks, we took a look at containers in the factory (it was more like a warehouse?). A barista told me that the company rent these containers out as storage. That’s a cool idea. When searching online, I thought we’d be sipping drinks in one of these like prisoners. Hehe. That’d be cool as well.
Now I’ve got a question; Which would you pick for having drinks?
A. a barista container (where he prepares drinks)
B. ‘outdoor’ seats (next to the barista container)
C. an air-conditioned-private container
We would go for ….(drum rolls)……..C! (we wouldn’t feel comfortable with the barista in a small container anyway…) Now I see that this cafe is to promote the containers. The same idea as showrooms (I saw catalogs at our seat). Anyway it is a neat idea, don’t you think? Coffee was good, hand dripped.
Alright. Let’s call it a day.
