This wonderful café, located along the Hato-no-machi-dori shopping arcade close to Hikifune Station, provides you with a full dose of old-school shitamachi ambience. Housed in a wooden building that was constructed in 1927 and escaped the firestorm of World War II, Koguma serves up craft coffee, hearty lunches (classic choices like omurice, napolitan and Japanese curry rice) and homemade cakes, all tasty and expertly prepared. Note that they’re often closed around the middle of the week, and opening hours tend to be rather flexible.
