Japanese cafe “Kuriya Kashi Kurogi” in Hongo campus of the University of Tokyo.

This Japanese cafe is produced by an up-and-coming young chef Kurogi who is the owner of popular kaiseki cuisine restaurant “KUROGI"

They opened the cafe in May 2 years ago. I have wanted to visit here for long time. I was so happy since I came here finally.
My purpose to come here is two.

The first was eating one of Japanese sweets, ”Warabi-Mochi”. It's good for hot season because it goes down easily and makes you cool. When you eat it, you enjoy that soothing taste in your throat.

They serve specialized coffee with their sweets in the Japanese cafe. The marriage with Japanese sweets and coffee was so excellent. They have the set menu 2050 yen. Of course they have other sweets and drink. All the sweets are available by the piece and case.

The second is the architect. This cafe was designed by a famous architect, Kuma Kengo who is OB of TOKYO university. He built so many great buildings. For example, Suntory Museum of Art, Asakusa cultural tourism center, Starbucks coffee Dazaifu etc. The big one is the stadium of Tokyo Olympic in 2020. Tha will be built also by his design.

There is a comfortable terrace surrounded by greenery. That might be best for relaxing in Spring and Fall. Be careful that the reservation is not accepted. Please go there directly.

Nice place to have a break with real Japanese sweets if you go around Hongo, Tokyo. I recommend feeling the academic atmosphere walking in the university. Be careful to lose your way because huge campus.
