The Kayaba coffee shop originally opened a few streets away from the Yanaka Cemetery in 1938. It  continued business until 2006, when it shut down due to it’s owner’s death.  In 2009, the community rallied to bring back this much loved and missed hub.  Today it is a combination of local meeting place and coffee destination.

Kayaba takes up an entire 2 floor house built in 1916.  The second floor is a combination of traditional tatami floor siting and Isamu Noguchi tables.   Old meets new in Japan again!  This little brown gem seems right out of a Ghibli world!

Kayaba is a great destination as it is across the street from a local museum that describes the history of the neighborhood, and only a block away from the famous art gallery “Scai Bathhouse “.

Pop in for a cute menu hot and cold drinks, tea sandwiches,  a weekly lunch menu and sweets; and then explore this simple yet alluring Tokyo suburb.

Like its sister hotel in Tulum, Coqui Coqui Coba holds its’s own separate visual identity.  While we were not lucky enough to stay here, we had a wonderful lunch and rest after our visit to the Coba Archeological City.

The meal was lovely, the coffee satisfying and the ambiance divine.  The photos truly do it justice, Coqui Coqui Coba is a hotel to come if you need to truly escape from your world into another.
