Charming tea house in the loveliest of surrounds
If you're after a break from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo, and enjoy the traditional side of Japan's tea culture, checking out Kosoan is a must do. It's hidden, in the backstreets - and it's easy to miss because there's only a very small sign to let you know you're in the right spot (my tip: follow Google maps so you don't get lost!) Their menu is fairly simple, with most "sets" coming with matcha and wagashi. The wagashi is seasonal, so you'll be greeted with a surprise! We had a style of wagashi that comes from Kanazawa when we visited, and it was delicious - almost cake-like in consistency. You'll be sitting at traditional low style tables, but it adds to the charm if you ask me. Be sure to take your camera, as the gardens outside and the fun ornaments and decor inside definitely warrant a few happy snaps! Menus are conveniently in English so if you don't read Japanese don't let that intimidate you from visiting.
