Fulfilled with the green and silent, “Temple Cafe” Enjoy the coffee and the Japanese atmosphere in Ikebukuro, a big city
It takes about 10 minutes in a walk from “Ikebukuro” station through the west exit, where is in the center of Tokyo, the capital city of Japan.
And from “Kanamecho” station, next to Ikebukuro station by Tokyo Metro Line, it takes only 2 minutes in a walk.
There is “Japanese cafe”, that is calmed and silent like Japanese old cities such as Kyoto and Kamakura.
This silent cafe is in the prospered big city, and it attracts attention as a hiding place, so that people who want to be healed visit this place with the green.
Amazingly, this cafe is in Shoin-ji Temple.
It has had a history since 1532, and there are Sanmon Gate with a rare ceiling picture, and grand main temple that is 23 meters width and 18 meters depth.
People can not imagine that the cafe is in this elegant and brave temple.
The cafe, “Boze’n COFFEE” is in “Bettei (villa)”, where is over “Kyakuden (reception hall)”, where is the right side in the temple.
It was opened in April, 2017, so that it is still new “hiding place”.
Interestingly, the vice priest in Shoin-ji Temple was a Barista, and this cafe was opened because he wanted a lot of people to see and get the temple”.
Both the coffee and the late art are good because he was a Barista.
You can choose “Shoin (drawing room)” or “Terrace” as your seat.
There are large Japanese rooms, and enough tables and chairs on the tatami, so that you can be relaxing.
When it is the sunny day, we recommend you to be in the balcony or the terrace seat, where is on the upper floor.
When you want to be in the Terrace, you should pass through the tatami floored main hall, that has the real atmosphere as the temple.
But if you see the sky, you will see tower buildings, and be realized that you are in Ikebukuro.
Why don’t you enjoy the relaxing coffee time in “Boze’n COFFEE” with such an atmosphere?
You can enjoy very Japanese “temple cafe” in a big city, Ikebukuro.
