Cafe Meijiya in Osafune Town, Setouchi City

Cafe Meijiya in Osafune Town, Setouchi City

Hi, it’s Mrs. Wada. I’m going to introduce another kominka cafe – Cafe Meijiya. It’s located in Osafune Town, Setouchi City, a place known for sword-making.

Cafe Meijiya

Cafe Meijiya owners came from Tokyo and moved in Setouchi City last year, 2017, and open this cafe last November. They named this place Cafe Meijiya simply because this house was built during Meiji era. It’s a traditional house renovated into a cafe. The couple did the renovation themselves.

It serves aged coffee, which the owner gets from his favorite coffee beans roaster in Tokyo.

Business Hours 7:00 AM – 6:00 PM (Closed on Tuesdays and Wednesday)

Few meters away from the cafe, I saw a small park with wisteria trees. I imagined it would be nice view on the season of wisteria. It’s walking distance from Osafune Station. A good walking course after checking out the Japanese Sword Museum.

Hi guys, it’s Mrs. Wada. I’m going to introduce one pretty cool cafe we found in Kojima (known for denim jeans). The place is called Kouheigura (珈琲蔵).

Kouheigura (珈琲蔵)

珈琲 (kohi) means coffee and 蔵 (kura) is storage. This place is a traditional storage renovated into a coffee shop. They serve coffee from freshly ground coffee beans and homemade cakes, that you can order a half-size so you can try different kinds. Here’s what we got.

Except from the cigarette smoke from other customers, I really like this place, the building itself with the cool beam ceiling, the window seat and view, the aroma of freshly ground coffee beans, the combination of cake and black coffee… Makes me want to go back again.
