    First of all, the book looks absolutely stunning! I could just feel the vibe of each depicted café right through the screen. The descriptions of the cafés are clear and comprehensive. I love the small highlights that the writer has pulled from every establishment. Information on Tokyo’s café etiquette, the nearest stations and categories for every type of café lover makes this compilation easy to approach and definitely useful for anyone. It’s clear the writer has taken the time, effort and pleasure to experience all of these places in earnest – just as I want to after having finished the book!

  • The full guide with beautiful visuals

    There is something very romantic about cafes and this guide does an excellent job at conveying the personality and characteristics of the chosen urban oasis’ in Tokyo. The cafes selected for this publication represent a nice variety and are clearly set into several groups based on their style and location. One of my favourite things are the “cafe tours” you can do based on, for example, how “instagrammable” the cafes are. Another very great part of this is the guide in the beginning that explains how visiting a Japanese cafe might differ from its western counterparts. Something that I would not have even thought about before reading about it here. The photos are very beautiful and give a great sense of what to expect in a chosen cafe. Also the clear visuals make it simple to find the information you need from close train stops to opening times. This is a very light yet informative read for anyone who finds the charm of cafes in Japan irresistible or is looking for something to check out on a visit to to metropolis.
