Hi, everyone. Thank you for visiting my blog!
This article is a guide to “Samurai Cafe” in Kameido, Tokyo. It’s in front of the west exit of Kameido Station. The cafe was chosen as one of “Tokyo coffee big four” and has been introduced to the media a lot of times. Not only famous but also a cozy space. I’m sure you’ll like the cafe!
The best feature of the cafe is having rocking chairs. It’s rare to have these chairs at Japanese traditional cafes. So you might feel surprised, but soon you will have a relaxing time while rocking. In addition, the cafe has some goods inspired after the Edo period. For example, armor, swords, roofing tiles and stuff like that. You will enjoy experiencing Japanese culture! Moreover, the price is written as “Ryo”, which is an old Japanese unit of money. It makes you feel like you’re traveling into the Edo period! Of course, the staff are welcoming and kind and gentle. The good service from the staff will make us feel better.
If you visit the cafe, make sure to order at least a cup of coffee. A lot of coffee cups are arranged on the counter shelf. You can choose your favorite cup from these cups if you sit on the counter seat. The staff carefully filtered the coffee. It almost seems like a work of art. The cafe served blended coffee and flavored coffee. Flavored coffee means to flavor the coffee during or immediately after roasting. There are some types such as blueberry, almond, orange and pineapple. You will have a new experience!
I’ve been to the cafe a lot of times, and I usually visit there in the morning. The breakfast set in a basket is my recommendation! It has buttered toast and salad. You can order the breakfast set for an additional 100 yen and add to your favorite drink like coffee. Most Japanese cafes serve reasonable breakfast menus. So it’s recommended to go early in the morning!
Of course, you will have a soothing time whenever you visit there because there are a lot of menus at the cafe. For example, food menus, coffee jelly, banana milk and more.
How to Get There
If you are going to the cafe, you should get off the train at Kameido station. As soon as you leave the station at the east exit, you will find a yellow walled building in front of the station. The cafe is on the second floor of that building. Although you can’t feel the atmosphere of the cafe, I think it’s easy to understand just by looking at the menu. Even if you get off the north exit of the station, you can arrive at the cafe in about five minutes.
