Kayaba Coffee in Yanaka first opened for business more than 80 years ago.
Over the years the fittings and menus have undergone some revision and renewal, however, a sense of days gone by still remains, with the cafe possessing a wonderful retro atmosphere.

Both the lunch and the coffee were very delicious.

Tsuge is a good izakaya in Shimokitazawa.
Their plates are good, and they have a lot of shochu and sake.

I can’t drink alcohols, but “Maneki-Neko (lucky cat)” shochu bottle was very cute!
The bottle was huge, friendly waiter told me it’s like a lucky charm for them, they buy it on every new year to pray for the prosperity of the shop and happiness.

They gave us special 20th anniversary Tenugui when we’re leaving. I like this round fan pattern.

My friend and I went to ‘Shibamatsu’ in Nakameguro to have a chankonabe.

Chankonabe is a hot pot dish that is usually eaten by sumo wrestlers in Japan.
Sumo wrestlers cook ‘chankonabe’ at their sumo stables for themselves and their boss.

We had some crab cream croquettes for an appetizer and a well-balanced shio chankonabe with a lot of vegetables and some mushrooms.
Everything was perfect.
