Kurashiki is seeing some sort of rejuvenation with a lot of building restoring their storefront, Scarecrow Coffee & More is giving new life to an old liquor store.
Hocus Pocus / Little Nap Coffee Stand is a minimalist Donuts & Coffee shop that was conveniently located in front of the conference I attended in Tokyo. It’s the first time I visited this area of Tokyo which is a short distance from National Diet and the Imperial Palace.

On a recent trip to Shimane Prefecture, we made a very brief stop at Kuri Kuri coffee 栗栗珈琲 in Masuda.
