The Hippest Tsukiji Coffee Shop
Welcome to the Best Outrageous Coffee Shop in Japan reads the sign outside Kiyoshi Kawasaki''s super cool, super friendly coffee haven in Tsukiji, just a short stroll from the famed Tokyo Tsukiji Fish Market, Tsukiji External Market (not moving anywhere, btw) and Exit 1 of the Tsukiji subway station (Hibiya line).
This hipster Tokyo coffee shop is super friendly
'Turret' is the name that the Tsukiji Fish market workers give to the electric-powered carts upon which they bomb around the market and adjacent streets, like latter day samurai cavalrymen. In a particularly cool move, Kawasaki-san has actually driven a 'turret' into his cosy shop, and topped it off with a tatami mat, where you can sit to enjoy his fabulous range of top quality coffees. It's seen its share of celebrity bums too. Orlando Bloom has been known to drop by when in town for an early morning cappuccino. We strongly suggest you do the same. This is surely the best coffee in Tsukiji.
