Newly renovated main café

Newly renovated main café

Nice to meet you all.

My name is "Midopa" and I am an online staff member.

I am pleased to inform you that the Nakamura Fujiyoshi Honten website has been renewed.

In line with the renewal, this blog page will provide information about Nakamura Tokichi Honten, including the store, menu, new products, etc....

We, the staff, would like to introduce you to our new products and services from our own point of view.

We hope you enjoy it!

Now, let's take a look at the memorable first installment.

We would like to introduce the café, which was remodeled in 2021, at our main store in Uji.


Main café renovated for the first time in nearly 20 years



The main café was renovated in January 2021 for the first time in about 20 years.

The building is a former tea factory built in the Taisho era.

We have retained as much of the atmosphere and atmosphere of those days as possible, such as the large beams and pillars, and we hope you will enjoy an extraordinary yet nostalgic feeling.

The building is extraordinary, yet you can enjoy a sense of nostalgia.



The high ceilings and the vaulted roof that extends out one more level are used to keep the heat in during the tea making process.

The roof of the tea ceremony house has a high ceiling and a vaulted roof, which was used to release heat during the tea making process.


A closer inspection of the store reveals remnants of the tea factory on some of the pillars.

The chalked notes are probably notes made at the time of tea making, and were not erased in the remodeling.



 Some of the high walls are blackened by soot from the production of hojicha.

The rough-finished walls also give off the atmosphere of those days.



The lamps use retro bare bulbs, similar to how tea factories looked in those days.



The former tea factory building is a space quietly nestled beside us.


Please take a look at the ceiling beams and the walls of the building.

Please have a look while drinking Japanese tea.
