古民家Cafe風07

What brings you to Japan? Want to feel old style Japanese culture? If so, I can recommend the best place for you to visit.

 

Hi, my name is Kenji Ono, shop owner of a small business called Konoka Coffee and also this website's administrator.

 

On November 25, a coffee house named "Kominka (古民家) cafe Kaze (風)" opens in Shinshiro City, in Aichi prefecture. "Kaze" means wind in Japanese. It is a very old style Japanese-folk house that was built 130 years ago. Since that time, nothing has been changed, and nothing has been added. It truly exists as it did in the Meiji Period. It is not a replica. Mr. Nagata and his wife will warmly welcome you anytime. You can relax around the Irori open fireplace enjoying good coffee (roasted by yours truly) made by Mr. Nagata and have a "mom's lunch" made by his wife. It is good to have a conversation with brand new friends sit next to you. There might not be another coffee house like this around my area, as far as I know. If you like old Japan, visiting here is a must. You can experience old and new Japan.
