Cafe Visit in Osaka, Kyoto & Matsuyama
« on: May 31, 2017, 04:06:16 PM »
Went to a park in Osaka where they had various stores selling food and drinks, just like our pasar malam stores.
Weather was cold in early April and the coffee was simply warm and rich!!!


Stayed at Umeda area in Osaka, visited this cozy CafeTip08 for some drip coffee....















While in Kyoto, near the Kyoto station, a very small cafe name KURASU KYOTO.










Next visit in less crowded Matsuyama, Cafe BC !























It was a rainy day and temperature was so cold at nearly 3 degrees and it was warm and awesome sitting in the cafe drinking another cup of siphon coffee  ;)






There are simply too many cafes in Japan, and I can't visit and drink coffee every one hour right?  ;D
Wish I have more days and able visit most of them during my visit.

Bro Oz,

Yeah, it is time for you to revisit The Land Of The Rising Sun again!
Which prefecture you friends and family are staying at?
Will be great to meet them up, gathering and visit some cafe and also..... HiFi shopping  ;D

Unfortunately I can't recall the exact location but maybe could find it on google maps as i did once before years ago.

visited this amazing Sushi bar and had the best meal ever in japan, I think all in was about 11,000Y for 2 and never ate and drank so much...the sumo wrestlers got there too as their pics are all on the walls. The sushi chiller was carved out of a ~20' tree trunk !!! we had grilled fugu in broth and what them make chawanmushi from scratch for us. only one customer could speak some english there so was a challenge to order but basically we said fedd feed us until we say stop. we went back 2 more times, took a photo with the mom and pop owners and sent a nice framed print back of them with us with out friends - must do that place again, even worth a special trip.

Your are not referring to those "special sushi bar" right? 😝
