Kosou-An, a Japanese Style Cafe

In the residential area of Jiyuu-gaoka, there is an old wooden house which has been remodelled and converted into a cozy cafe called Kosou-An for the people who visit Jiyuu-gaoka. This town ranks #1 by Tokyo women as their most desired town to reside in.   At Kosou-An, you can have coffee, green-tea, ice latte or matcha green tea.  Each drink comes with a free, small confectionery and iced water (see pictures below).  You can also order a delicious Japanese dessert of your choice from a variety of selections they have on offer. There is no music as it is not necessary or needed.  Tranquility is what you cherish and enjoy here.  In a old house, the time stops and you are warped back in history.   You imagine you are not a person of this era.  Overlooking the beautiful Japanese garden, have a taste of your green tea and muse in a dream if you wish to.  Nobody bothers you. What an awesome place to be.

I purchased these handmade coasters from their gift shop.  500 yen each.
