Blue Machiya・青い町屋

Blue Bottle Coffee in a traditional machiya building, at Rokkaku and Higashinotoin Streets in central Kyoto. The coffee shop took over a 100 year old bicycle shop (the bike shop still occupies the left section of the building); while a new multi-story grocery store is next door. This is Kyoto in a nutshell: new and old, co-existing, thriving. (Note the big stone at the corner, commonly used to protect from vehicle traffic.)

Taken in Kyoto, Japan
