Since it is true that Japan is No.4 consumer of world coffee beans only after EU, the USA and Brasil, as you might have assumed, downtown Tokyo has many thousands of coffee shops. 7-Eleven sold 850 million cups in 2015, and nubmers are rising-sun! In this page, unique all-about-cafe is linked, and some useful information for those who would like to be an owner of your taste of cafe. You may visit some of them before you open your stylish cafe shop in your city, before you decide which part of downtown Tokyo you would like to move into. Already an owner? already a resident of Tokyo? wanna be lost in translation? you may add some "bean" and "aroma" which could lead more spirits into your life (even temporary life) in Japan.

Peace, Nature, Love and Light, oh, Cat? and Rabbit? and Dog? and even Owl?!
