Hi, Mrs. Wada is back. I’m going to introduce another kominka cafe located in Soja City, Okayama Prefecture – Kohi to Hito (珈琲と人).
Kohi to Hito (珈琲と人)
This cafe is nearby the Bichu Kokubunji Temple, a five-story pagoda and one of the stops of Kibi Trail cycling route. Formerly a guesthouse, renovated into a cafe-gallery. It serves meals using their home grown vegetables and rice, as well as handmade sweets perfect to have with their single origin nel drip coffee. Let’s go inside!
It’s busy especially during lunch time, so you may need to wait for awhile before you can take your seat. There’s a tatami room, regular room with tables and seats, and one private room.
After placing an order, it’s time to roam around. C’mon let’s check!
Our order is here, coffee time!
There are many old books and magazines on display. Got excited to see this one, Kurashi no Techou. It happens that an NHK TV drama that I was watching was based on the life story of the chief editor of this magazine. It is said that this company is the pioneer of writing product reviews of which they buy the products and perform comprehensive tests themselves, without sponsors.
There’s also a gallery section at the second floor with exhibition of various artists that changes every now and then. Totally forgot to check it out this time.
