Here’s a nice little piece with lots of photos from the Japan Times┬áthat takes a look at some of the old kissaten (coffeeshops) that survive in Tokyo, here focusing on the area of the city called Yanesen (a combination of Yanaka, Nezu, and Sendagi).

Guide to Yanaka

My buddy Said Karlsson has written quite a few guides for Navitime’s JapanTravel site, and his latest contribution is for the lovely Yanaka neighborhood of Tokyo. The best thing about these posts is that they all feature great photography by┬áSaid. I also like this post that offers up a selection of kissaten (old style coffeeshops).
