Marutou Wasabi Café

Muko

Dec 8, 2016

At Mount Takao, Marutou Wasabi Farmer’s Café is a special café that opens only on the third Sunday of every month. No wonder it’s little known to both locals and tourists, and that’s why it’s my secret chillout spot. I guess it also helps that it’s located in a mountain area with few inhabitants.

The café is within an old Japanese private house with a small veranda where you can sit and enjoy organic juice, tea and home-made ice-cream. Such verandas are slowly disappearing in Japan. What a waste! I really enjoy sitting here and talking with the inhabitants living in other old Japanese style house in the village near Mount Takao.

Wasabi Farmer’s Cafe is located in the Inazu area and is a 25-minute car ride from Izukyu Shimoda station. Come here for a café experience that’s out of the ordinary!

月に一日しかオープンしない古民家カフェ

伊豆急下田駅から車で約25分、稲梓エリアにあるカフェ。

観光客だけでなく、地元民にも知られていない超穴場スポット。
ほとんど人に知られていない理由は、毎月第3日曜にしか
オープンしていないこと、人里少ない山の中にあること、
そしてここは、普段は人が住む普通の民家だから。

日本古来の家には、縁側と呼ばれる小さなテラスがある。
今では失われつつあるこの縁側に座ってオーガニックな
ジュースやお茶、自家製アイスを楽しむことができる。

日本の里山や、古き良き古民家を楽しみながら住人とお話を
しながら過ごすひと時は、他では手に入らない思い出となるはず。
