Hi, it’s Mrs. Wada back on duty. This time I’m going to introduce another cafe that we visited just recently in Wake Town – Cafe & Artspace Fusha (風舎). Wake Town, by the way, is known for wisteria flowers, another reason for our visit this time!
Cafe & Artspace Fusha (風舎) is located in a secluded village on a 400-meter high mountain in Wake Town. The building used to be an elementary school (closed last 43 years ago), now owned by Mr. Hideki Kiguchi. Mr. Kiguchi is a wood furniture artist who moved in Wake Town in 1994 and later on opened his workshop and this cafe.
Coffee and Sweets
I’m not sure if I had cold brew coffee before, but I’m pretty sure that this one I had in this cafe is my first time to taste. Quite interesting that it made me want to try making cold brew coffee at home.
It’s an interesting experience to be able to go inside an old school building, enjoy a cup of coffee and sweets and hear stories from the owner and other customers. In the old days, students of this school were from families who lived and worked at nearby coal mine, nearby like more than 1 hour walk though.
By the way, on our way out, the security chief officer keeps barking towards the direction where we didn’t sense any presence of anyone… Thanks for reading!
Buon giorno! It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. This time I would like to share things to do in Miyoshi City, Tokushima Prefecture.
Top Things to Do in Miyoshi City, Tokushima
Miyoshi City is full of nature which we, the Wadas appreciate the most. One of our favorite places Kazurabashi (introduced by Mrs. Wada) is in Miyoshi City as well. Let’s start with it with more photos!
Kazurabashi Suspension Bridge
Kazurabashi is a suspension bridge made of ivy. It looks scary but durable enough to hold numbers of people at once. To be honest I AM frightened of height but this is quite enjoyable.
Iya Bijin is a ryokan (Japanese style hotel) and also serves food at its restaurant with great views of Iya valley! It’s not far from the Kazurabashi bridge. It’d be nice to stop by for slurping some noodles, wouldn’t it?
This statue stands in the middle of the Iya valley. A little hard to access (though accessible by car or local bus) but surroundings are really nice (a perfect photo spot). Worth a visit while in Iya area.
