This time we will introduce Omishima Coffee Roastery, a café any coffee lover should visit at least once in their lifetime!
Omishima Island, located in the central part of Shimanami Kaido, has been called the island of gods. In this beautiful place abundant with nature, you will also find a coffee roastery & café run by a Tokyo couple.
With gorgeous views towards the sea, Omishima Coffee Roastery is a chic café in a renovated 70-year-old Japanese house located on higher ground in the southern part of the island.
The old yet new building is filled with a somewhat nostalgic air. Though it’s only been open a year, numerous visitors come, many from outside the prefecture, looking for delicious coffee and beautiful views.
This is the jaw-dropping view from the café.
Blue skies, azure seas, and right before your eyes a mandarin garden – Relax, drink your coffee, and soak up the scene in a moment of luxury that can’t be had in the city.
Omishima Coffee procures only carefully selected coffee from known producers and farms mostly in Central and South America.
After receiving the order, your cup of coffee is carefully hand-dripped.
The refined interior with its wooden furnishings and tatami mats is very relaxing, and in order to give customers the best possible view of the beautiful Seto Inland Sea and sky, one of the walls is filled with large windows. The calm, glistening sea makes the coffee taste even better.
Did coffee always taste this gentle? I’m surprised by the difference in flavor compared to what I usually drink. It’s a flavor that makes you want to thank not only the owner who carefully brews the coffee, but also the people who grow the coffee beans.
The homemade cake is delicious, as well. It is said that a person’s kindness can be felt in their cooking, and I really felt it here.
Before the sun sets, a stunning moon climbs up before my eyes. During normal opening hours you won’t be able to see the moon. However, sometimes the shop arranges moon-viewing events.
The moon creates a magical road of light on the sea, which can only be seen on the island. It’s a place that will make you want to visit again, with flavors that will make you want them again.
How about a cup of delicious coffee while enjoying nature on an island in the Seto Inland Sea?
