Pho, Rice paper rolls, curry, donburi, pizza, coffee and sweets. Add a super cute retro and pop style interior and you have 食堂ミタケ・オアシン (Mitake Oashin) cafe in Yutenji. A little bit asian, a little bit western and just the right amount hippy, this is one cosy little cafe to relax away the afternoon. Have fun spotting adorable nostalgic retro items like a crochet fan cover, a baby pink ukulele with folk embroidery strap, and for those with impressive Japanese, you can read some retro poi manga. For those who love granny square blankets this place is basically heaven for you. Mismatched retro tea cup and saucer sets are all the rage here too.

Getting there:
Take my favourite train line, the Toyoko line to Yutenji and pop out at the Higashi (east) exit. Turn down the street on your right - and follow the street alongside train tracks about 3 minutes until you hit a small t-intersection, and there you will find 食堂ミタケ・オアシン cafe.

Enjoy!
