Engawa Cafe

A vintage cafe refashioned from an old Japanese house.

Located in the middle of nature near Mount Yatsugatake, the Engawa Cafe is a rustic cafe overlooking a little garden. Once an old Japanese house, it has now been refashioned to include modern and vintage elements. The old and new blend together to create a rustic, yet fashionably vintage atmosphere. Later, more of such cafes opened in the area, but being the pioneer, the Engawa cafe still maintains its charm against the new competitors.

Enjoy a leisurely afternoon sipping coffee and watching the resident duck pacing to and fro through the glass window. It is 4 km from Kobuchizawa station and best accessible by car.
