Cafe in Bizen City: Udo Coffee

Cafe in Bizen City: Udo Coffee

Hola amigos. We would like to introduce Udo Coffee in Bizen City this time.

Cafe in Bizen City: Udo Coffee

Udo Coffee is run by an owner of a popular cafe named Kinoshita Shoten. Let’s see what differences this place makes.

First of all, it is inside the JR Inbe Station. Inbe is the center of Bizen City (there is no Bizen Station, by the way) where it is famous for Bizenyaki pottery. The cafe is inside the building but right before the gate, so non-passengers can enter as well.

Interior looks nice. Oh hey, look at the view of the platform through the window! Trains pass by every now and then. It reminds us of Tsuji Coffee in Kasaoka City which is also beside the train rail.

We grabbed some chocolate cake and a toast. Of course with coffee (in a Bizenyaki mug!)

Let’s call it a day.

How do you find it? A cafe inside a station is such a catch, isn’t it? Well, not just a catch, it is awesome. Please swing by.

Stylish Cafe in Bizen City: Coharuni

koharuni cafe bizen city okayama

Hi there. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to introduce stylish cafe in Biizen City called Coharuni this time.

Stylish Cafe in Bizen City: Koharuni

Pass through a view of traditional houses and here it comes Coharuni. Seeing a modern building like this in a place like Bizen is odd but I find it cool as well. Walking distance since it is not far from Bizen central. Let’s go investigate!

 

As I enter, it’s so bright and clean. Stylish, I’d say. We gotta order drinks before getting to the seats.

 

OK, let’s take a seat. Hey look out, this table is neat! I guess we could play with it while waiting for our drinks.

However, we learned that this store is owned by an architect and turns out, and it is one of his works for sale. So staff asked us to move to another table. What a shame. >x<

Trying to stay cool….

 

Seats are all facing a tree in the middle.

 

Iced coffee (300 yen) with a scone (200 yen). Mine came with local honey and Mrs. Wada’s was with blueberry from Hiruzen, Maniwa City (where we usually camp). Pretty good.

 

Gallery

There’s an art gallery upstairs. The architect (I suppose he’s the owner) showed us his works. I sense that he’s full of passion for art. Great. He told us that he designed this cafe itself also. The miniature version of this cafe he made for design was in so much detailed.

Other stuff is rather art. Though he is considering producing something more practical/useful. That’s a good idea. Heh heh.

 

Let’s call it a day.
