Hello everyone, and welcome to our coffee shop tour, where we’ll take you to some of the best coffee shops in Tokyo. Some of these we found out via researching online, but many of them we just stumbled upon, like our secret shop (that isn’t a secret anymore). And I think the ones you discover on your own will mean a lot more to you than the ones that we, or anyone else for that matter, tell you to visit. Those personal finds will resonate with you for a lifetime. But, if you’re looking for a starting point, hopefully this video can be of some small help. Here’s a list of the places we went to:
Light Up Coffee:

Little Nap Coffee Stand:

However, we didn’t get to mention two other shops that we frequent and really love, but just didn’t get to film this time. Maybe in a part two video in the future? If not, we’ll share them with you here!
It’s a shame we didn’t get to mention this one on video. We love this place and go here often. It’s just such a small shop and really difficult to film. But the owner is a really cool dude who specializes in hand drip. Nothing but hand drip. And he remembers your coffee preferences as well. You can go in there and ask for the regular and he’ll remember that you had Tanzania last time. Ah! It’s great. And the coffee jelly there is tremendous as well.
It’s located at 3 Chome-3-10 Kichijoji Honcho, Musashino, Tokyo 180-0004. They’ve got their own website as well. Give them a shot. You’ll like them :D
Coffee Elementary School
This is a shop we go to once a week minimum. It’s located close to Shibuya station, maybe a ten minute brisk walk or so, and they’re great! They have deliciously creamy cold brew coffee, and great coconut granola. If you remember our Balmuda Toaster video, they have one there as well, so you can get some toast and experience the magic. Also, I know this isn’t coffee related, but god damn they have the best toilet I’ve ever shat in. It’s such a delight. Go downstairs, and have the shit of a lifetime. Their toilet is top of the line, and it smells like a hotel there. It’s got flushing sounds as well if you’re letting them rip, but you’re in the privacy of the basement, in your own little oasis. And if you’re like me, a bit of coffee really gets you going. You’ll love this place, for it’s coffee, as well as its toilet.
Their address is 12-6 Uguisudanicho, 渋谷区 Tokyo 150-0032 and you can find them on Facebook as well
Lastly, if you’re in the mood for some more laughs, we’ve got some extra scenes below!
