Report of 4 Cozy Cafes
① COFFEE NOVA
I like the atmosphere of the cafe, which matches our small town with local life. Owner of the cafe is there and give you advise what to select and he himself can hand-drip your coffee. You can order bread from famous bakery ”Pelican”, which is very popular among local bread lovers. They have to-go cup, you can go to Sumida river side for a walk with a cup of coffee.

② SOL’S COFFEE
This is a coffee stand. It is located on a small street of Kuramae local life area. You can sit on a bench in front of the stand, enjoy the local air. You may suddenly feel that you are a part of the life there.
They make coffee with hand dripping. The waiting time is nice. Enjoy watching coffee being prepared for you. I took their home-made ginger soda drink. It was very good.
You can walk Sumida river side with coffee. Or you can also enjoy the river view from middle of Umaya bridge (green bridge) with your coffee in your hand.
Many boats are coming and going from Asakusa. It can be unforgettable scene. I love river watching – This is my recommendation.

③ en 鷰
One of most spacious cafe among Kuramae’s cafe . It is opened in 2018 spring. Friendly staff, interior is harmonious in color. Coffee and food are served.
We went to second floor to have relaxing time in lounge. We ordered a matcha affogato and coffee.
We had a seat on window side, watching the town of Kuramae from the window and chatting..Good sun light is coming in the space. Just so cozy.

④ Cafe&Grill MANUKA
Cozy spacious, relaxing place. You can enjoy drinks, alcohol, coffee and New Zealand dessert and steak. Open til late. You will be amazed with open ceiling space. Looking up the ceiling.. I felt infinity…
