宇ち多 Uchida


Aki:
This is by far the deepest spot I’ve found in Tokyo. I recommend to go with at least one fluent Japanese speaking person because you have to follow their “rules”. Their motsu-yaki and nikomi (motsu-stew) and all items are 200yen but super high quality… That’s why the place opens at 11am but by 2pm most items are sold out and they’ll close by 4pm. It’s a disneyland for solo ojiisan.

Juhla Tokyo

Charlene:
Finnish jazz cafe with lingonberry G&T. Also has cinnamon rolls, and blueberry tarts on the weekend. Holds live music events sometimes! There’s a record player there and a CD player for you to try out different records/CDs. Great community vibe.

This little shop is in Setagaya! Dog-friendly. Imports bagels from NY and you can get cosmetics there too…
