Kichijoji is a fantastic area in Tokyo just west of the epicenter of downtown. This gives it a half big city feel while retaining some of the niceties of a more rural life.
And it just so happens to have incredible coffee shops too — and here you can find 8 of the best picked by locals.
“A few minutes’ walk from Kichijoji station, this sliver of a house serves great specialty single-origin coffee. The espresso-based drinks of Ryumon are top-notch, served along with cakes and muffins in a clean, minimalist space.” (TokyoWeekender)
