|【Tourist guide to Jinaimachi town, Tondabayashi, a historic district and heritage site of Japan, Cafe Heizo】
|Allured by the pleasant fragrance of coffee, I dropped in at the coffee
shop Heizo at Koubai-Kura along Kita Kaisho-cho. Café Heizo is characterized
as using self-roasted coffee beans. The inside of Koubai-Kura, an old building
used as a storehouse of the sweet sake brewing in the Edo era was retrofitted
to open the café in January, 2013．At the entrance of the shop、a full-scale
German style self-roast machine is placed, which is completely covered
with glass and draws attention. Thanks to this machine, I can enjoy coffee
with rich aroma of freshly roasted beans in this shop.
Watching the floor at the corner of the shop, a pot of the large ceramics
has been buried in the ground. The large pottery seems nearly 1 meter in
height which was used for brewing Japanese mirin seasoning (a kind of sweet
sake liquor) made from Japanese apricot with red blossoms. Through a transparent
glass floor board, you can look at the inside from right above the pot.
In the case of Jinaimachi town walk, please be sure to drop in.
