Kaikado has been selling hand crafted chazutsu or Japanese tea caddies since 1875 . In plain English, a tea caddy is pretty much a can, but the craftmanship at Kaikado is pretty amazing and this is not your average tea or coffee can. Kaidado caddies are made in Kyoto.
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.
J’ai découvert le livre Café d’Hippolyte Courty est écoutant le podcast On va déguster sur France Inter. J’habite le Japon depuis maintenant 8 ans et les livres en français sont un véritable luxe. Voici un petit compte rendu.
珈琲と人 or Coffee to Hito (coffee and people) is a beautiful coffee shop located in Soja not too far from Kokubunji temple. I have ridden my bike, ran and drove my car in front of it for the past 8 years without never noticing it.
Starbucks is now in Vietnam. I won’t lie to you, the first time I visited Vietnam, I could not imagine Starbucks in the streets of Ho Chi Minh. The streets are changing quickly but I still can’t figure out if it’s for the best.
My third visit to Ho Chi Minh was marked by the major subway construction project taking place right in the center of the city and the numerous new restaurants which had sprung up since our last visit. The Workshop was on my list of new places to visit. The new coffee shop located right in the heart of Dong Khoi street attracted a lot of attention online and I went there the first day I landed in Vietnam.
