Bourbon & Cake

Sitting at the bar of Kyoto Jazz Spot YAMATOYA, listening to Stan Getz and Juão Gilberto, looking at all the bottles behind.

Jazz Kissa are café/bars dedicated to playing jazz, with thousands of LPs and CDs; and large, high-end sound systems, often vintage McIntosh and JBL components. They are dwindling in number, but hundreds of these kissa are still going strong throughout Japan. Most started in the 60’s and 70’s and still have a vintage vibe from that time.

Below, photos from another Jazz Kissa, "Eagle" in Tokyo. You can get a good idea of the atmosphere from these photographs.

Taken in Higashiyama, Kyoto, Japan
