Tokyo is a thriving spot for cafes and coffee. You might be surprised to know that Japan is one of the largest consumers of coffee in the world. While Japanese coffee culture is relatively new, compared to coffee consuming countries like Turkey, but if you stroll through the streets of Tokyo, you’ll see coffee everywhere – inside vending machine, across different chain cafe, and at unique cafes like the one I went to last week.
The cafe is several minutes walking distance from the train station and as you navigate your way to the cafe be sure not to walk by it as it’s a little bit hard to see. But there’s a hammock outside the cafe, and that’s an easy giveaway that you’ve found the spot.
Tokyo’s Mahika Mano Cafe, also known as Hammock Cafe, is located in Kichijōji (吉祥寺). I went here last week with my friend from Canada who was visiting Japan with his family. This unique venue let’s you enjoy a cup of coffee (and other beverages) and sweet pastries as you swing back and forth on a hammock. It’s a great place to hang out!
