How perfect is the combination of Tea & Kokeshi? As a (huge) fan of Kokeshi, I was super excited when I first found out about 西荻イトチ Nishiogi Itochi Tea & Kokeshi cafe in Nishi-Ogikubo when they opened last year. I’ve walked past several times but it was only yesterday that I finally went in for a cup of tea with lovely Hiki! The space was quiet and peaceful with lots of kokeshi and other handmade Japanese crafts on display. I especially enjoyed the Kokeshi books and magazines collection they had at the back of the cafe. They also conduct Japanese crafts workshops once in a while on the 2nd floor. Looking forward to attending one soon!
The Kokeshi displayed are all for sale at a reasonable price. They are all handmade by craftsmen from different parts of Japan.
Kokeshi Ramune! I have been searching for them for a long time. So glad I finally got hold of one!
Can’t wait to visit again ♥
