Coffee shops are plentiful in Tokyo, but the only trouble is, many of them are much the same. Big companies, selling colossal amounts of coffee, in comfy but ultimately characterless surroundings.
Not that there aren’t any independent shops of course, it’s just finding them. But when one does, they often offer a far more interesting look.
Love it! Reminds me of James Bond for some reason 😉
Interesting. That’s not something that had occurred to me.
its just her hair cut
Interesting and cool picture!
The lady looked so natural.
Yeah, she didn’t seem to mind in the slightest that I was taking a picture.
Furnishings don’t look that comfy though !
That’s very true. Comfort was certainly the compromised in the pursuit of character. The chairs reminded me of those found at school.
The lady has a deep intent look in her eyes, which is a distinct contrast to the man in the picture. I wonder if they were there for a chat over a cup of coffee.
Possibly. Tough to say as they left not long after we arrived. But that makes it perfect to speculate on.
Perfect shot. The look, the hat.
Great subjects and fantastic atmosphere in this shot.
Like the work you’ve done with your phone, and the haikyo is fascinating too.
Thanks a lot!
Love the Kissaten coffee shops found near most train stations… often a step back in to the 70’s. Not just in the furnishings, but clientele and service.
Yes, so much better than the generic chains that now sadly dominate…
but the coffee sucks always Key coffee and old. and the smoke in those places in unbearable which is why Staba is so popular

Very nice photo! The only word I can make out in the whole picture is “PARTY” above her head.
Cheers John. Most of the other writing was simply names and dates.
