Kissaten are literally “tea-drinking shops” that gained popularity in the Showa Era and were different from cafes. In this feature, we introduce a Japanese-style kissaten with an elegant, retro atmosphere with warm wooden interiors, quite different to modern, minimalist cafes.
Tabi Suru Kissa (旅する喫茶) is located in Koenji (高円寺), a popular residential area in Tokyo. Unlike traditional kissaten, this cafe offers curry rice and cream soda made using local ingredients that are sourced directly from various prefectures.
A must try is this mouthwatering Japanese curry rice.
You can order this dish with a cheese topping.
The curry rice at this restaurant is just as delicious as any other famous restaurants you may want to visit.
The signature item of this restaurant is the cream soda. A typical Japanese drink, cream soda is made from fruit-flavored syrup mixed with sparkling water and topped with vanilla ice cream and cherries.
Available in various flavors and served in a beautiful glass, it’s perfect for your Instagram.
Depending on the season, you will also find different fruit toppings other than cherries.
For complete relaxation, this restaurant also provides pens, crayons, and pads for drawing. You can sketch or write comments about the dishes and drinks served here.
Muted, warm lighting and wooden furniture add a beautiful atmosphere that instantly helps you relax.
A unique experience of a kissaten, add this cafe to your must-visit list during your trip to Tokyo.
