not JUST coffee

Walk the streets of Japan for more than a few minutes and you'll quickly realise that people here absolutely love coffee, although NEVER just by itself....

Here's a splendid one for starters....


Sounds nice....






Ever tried a coffee pizza?


Switching the word order may cause confusion....

Even the "&" is back to front.


Wouldn't beer be better?


Not for the indecisive....

"I'll have a coffee, no wait, make that a tea, hang on, coffee, no tea, coffee..." etc etc

No such dilemmas here....


Perfect for the more hirsute members of society....



Enjoy a drink with the popular Japanese figure skater.


A kick in the teeth with every cappuccino!

I love the sound of Coffee & Coffee

Every inch of Englishness screams at me to finish that sentence likewise in a slow provocative tone: it’s not just coffee, its Japanese coffee. Shame many of you probably won’t get that...

I'll have a large coffee with a room for chest wax, please. Oh, make that two.

As always, love your blog.

The last photo made me smirk.

Though reading the comments and looking at the pictures again, that last photo looks edited. I mean, it doesn't even look like a coffee shop.

wow that's a nice collection of pictures! I didn't know Japan routinely groups 'coffee' with other things to attract customers...makes the whole Starbucks regime here in the US seem so one-dimensional. haha

Could have a place inside a train station, right on the platform like the standing udon shops, called "Coffee and the Hereafter."

There is a place called HIFI COFFEE here in Kitahorie.

If only half of that were true... or should I say, it would be a scary world if it were. Hmmm - coffee and okonomiyake.... now there's a good combination.

How about "coffee & hot water (milk and sugar optional)"... now that's truth in advertising.
