Cafe and Shop & Things @ Nap Village

Nap Village and the & Things cafe are located in Kibichuo on the narrow road 484.  I recently ended up in Kibichuo to pick up some blueberries and buy some cheese at the famous Yoshida farm. When it came to eat lunch, I remembered that & Things was no far from Yoshida farm.

Hayashi Cafe

My wife found Hayashi Cafe (林のカフェ) on a blog. Located in Hayashi, there are almost no chances you run into this coffee shop well hidden behind trees. Hayashi Cafe is so nice, I wonder if I should even recommend it.  I have a feeling this place will be very popular, maybe too popular.

L’Usine et la Cafétéria de l’Usine
