If I was in Kyoto, I’d definitely drop by this new Starbucks (opening at the end of the month) that looks more like a traditional tea house than the cafe chain we know. More in this Spoon & Tamago post.
And another BitSummit has come and gone in Kyoto. As with last year, I’m quite sad I couldn’t be there, and seeing so many of my friends (through social media) have a blast — during and after hours — was a pain. But I am happy to see that it looks like it’s been the […]
For its latest episode, Toco Toco TV revisits the gaming space through a profile of Kazutoshi Iida (Doshin the Giant). He produced three games (that was always his plan), before turning into an academic. The episodes features a great look at some of Kyoto’s art spots.

They’ve just revealed the logo […]

Spoon & Tamago highlights the beautiful new Hermes pop-up shop and event space in Kyoto, which will be open for 9 months. It was designed by Nendo alum Koichiro Oniki.
Some very good news indeed, as we learn through Famitsu that a 5th edition of Japan’s premiere indie game event, the Kyoto-based BitSummit, is officially happening. Not only that, but instead of a sweaty July date, they’ve decided to move up the event a bit to May (it will be held on the 20th and 21st). […]
Bake sounds like a very interesting pastry shop/chain — read more about the company in this Spoon & Tamago post — and pictured here is its latest shop, located in Kyoto. Yup, those are Lego blocks that you see as part of the decor.
