|In the middle of walk, I dropped in at coffee shop Narod in the Honmachi
street mall. The look of the shop whose outer wall is completely covered
by ivy is distinctive. When you step in the shop, classical music may be
listened and the stately decorations of the bricks attract eyes.
There is a calm atmosphere created by such furniture including a
counter, a fireplace, a table and the chair thoroughly from corner to corner.
You can feel relaxed and enjoy the atmosphere at the cafe while it is easy
to lose track of time.
I thoroughly enjoyed a cup of fragrant coffee and borscht of the popular choice as shown in the photo. Please drop in at the shop while taking a walk in Jinaimachi.

The stylish coffee shop where a leaf of green ivy spreads in the whole outer wall of the shop. narod means the nation, a race, the people in Russian. It is a shop of the exquisite brick interior decoration that the first floor of two-story old townhouse was retrofitted along the Honmachi street shopping mall. The relaxing classical music can be always listened in the shop, and the feeling calms down here. The master has opened the traditional coffee shop here for many years since 1972.
