Vintage Cafe…Like Travelling Back in Time

I took a visit to Hitachiōta — a beautiful little town where so many of the buildings have been preserved for the past hundred years or more. Just walking down the street, it almost feels like I’ve accidentally wandered onto a movie set. Some of the buildings are little corner shops that have been running for well over half a century, while others have been converted into posh restaurants and cafes.

We stopped for coffee at one particularly interesting cafe. They decorated the inside of the shop with all sorts of vintage items…books, an old radio, a television from the fifties, refurbished shelves and stools, and quaint cup and saucer sets.

The main floor of the cafe was tastefully touched up and redecorated, but while they were brewing our coffee, the owner of the shop took us upstairs. The upper floor of the cafe had been almost completely untouched, and was preserved in its original state. It felt just like we had stepped back in time!
