|On the way back from Jinaimachi town to Tondabayashi station, I tried to
stop by a newly-opened cafe restaurant "Shiori" along the central
shopping district. An old townhouse was retrofitted to the cafe restaurant
and opened on June 1, 2014.
Entering into the inside of the cafe resutaurant, an exhibition space on the tatami mats is available for art gallery. On the day, stunning artworks by Mr. Iwano, a nextdoor bicycle shopkeeper have been exhibited. Large tatami rooms of the back have become a dining space. Dining tables and seats are placed on the tatami mat, whcih make visitors feel relaxed and comfortable. You can enjoy the garden (yard) on the veranda of the dining room and dining terrace on the wooden deck viewing the garden is also available.
