Whenever we go to visit a new neighborhood, I always try to find a coffee shop to go to. That’s one of the perks of living in Tokyo. There are great coffee shops everywhere. Last weekend, we explored Kiyosumi Shirakawa, and my coffee research led us to Arise Coffee Roasters. As you can see, it’s not a “sit down and sip your coffee while reading a book” type of place, but the coffee was excellent!

By the way, after I took this photo, the guy on the left stood up and said “Leica! Nice camera!”. It was a shock because strangers speaking to me in English is a rare occurrence in Japan.
