Reasons for trip

The café Coffee tea and Bag TSUTAYA had only half a dozen tables with only a couple occupied. The English menu shaped like a handbag listed various teas, coffees and cakes.

We chose a single espresso (which was really big) and cappuccino. Also bearing in mind the app on my phone showed we walked over 20,000 steps, I felt I deserved two small warm scones with strawberry jam and cream.

All the cups and saucers were mis-matched old fashioned china with mine being served in Wedgewood’s Wild Strawberry. Roy couldn’t believe I knew what the design was but it was all the rage when I was 21 and I still have a few ornaments somewhere in the house.

Lovely American big band music played in the background and when we went to the loo, we discovered it was coming from an LP being played on a 1970s record player. The owner was obviously keen on this type of music as posters filled the walls.

Our bill ¥1300 (£8.50) was presented in a tiny handbag. We left feeling warm and revived.
