Savour green tea by the pot with an onigiri on the side at this café, located a leisurely ten-minute walk from Shibuya Station. The tea used is Yamecha, a Fukuoka-born, umami-rich leafy brew selected by tea master Yasuhiko Kiya, who has been honoured as a Japanese tea specialist, a title held by only 38 other people in the country (think of it as an extra-special black belt in green tea). If you want to nibble on something while sipping your cuppa, try one of their signature onigiri, which come in ten different flavours including pickled plum, salmon, kombu, mountain burdock and whitebait (shirasu) with okaka.
