In cafe far far away

Today’s drawing comes from a cafe rather a long way north and west of where I usually have a coffee break. I’m in Kanazawa, a city on the west coast of Japan. 

To find good coffee in Japan you need to leave the coffee chains of the main street behind and hunt around for shops called kissaten, or look down the smaller streets for a coffee sign.


The barrista at work.

Here the barrista at Higashide coffee is working on the next orders, with jars of coffee behind him. This particular coffee shop, is located behind the Ohmicho markets. It’s well worth a visit if you are in the area.

  1. Hi Leonie! Thank you for your painting and coming yesterday.

    Your Japanese is pretty good. I was surprised you studied Japanese just 2 weeks. It’s amazing!
    I’ve been study English lately.

    It was nice to see you.
    Hope you are having a great time!
