This is a list of posts I’ve done on cafes outside the main areas of Shibuya and Shimokitazawa, which are already well-covered by many travel and coffee review sites.

This list is growing as I review more places. If you have suggestions to add to my maps, please let me know!

    1. No problem! Hope it helps and please check out my other lists! They’re grouped by neighbourhood, so it’s easy for you to visit several in one go. Personally, I think Kiyosumishirakawa has the highest concentration of high quality coffee. Some other areas are more life-style concept focused than drink-focused.
