Issin Niyo

Hello dear readers! How are you?


Today I’d like to tell you about a lovely little cafe I’ve found in Nishi-Ogikubo called Issin Niyo. It’s one of the cutest I have visited, with a unique menu.


Nishi-Ogikubo is a good area for antique hunting. However, it really is hunting, because the shops aren’t so easy to find! They are all pretty spaced out from each other. It will take me a couple more visits before I feel equal to making some sort of guide to the area, so to start off with I’ll tell you about this cafe!


IMG_4876About my outfit, the dress is Mary Magdalene and the navy ribbon is Jane Parple. My other accessories are navy too but they look black in this picture unfortunately! Anyway, I absolutely love this dress, it’s so simple but so beautiful and the fit and length is great for me. I got it for a bargain price because the neck ribbon is missing, even better!



Here’s one of the most interesting items on the menu. It’s a tea from Taiwan with a very particular system for brewing and drinking! As you can see it’s quite complicated and invloves an array of equipment, but the staff are happy to show you the way to do it! Also, you can choose which tea cup you would like to use from their charming collection.



There is a great selection of teas of various kinds and also japanese dumplings (odango) and scones which come in different flavours, changing with the season. You can purchase the tea leaves to take home with you.


Please find information on how to get there and when they are open on Issin Niyo’s website:


Thanks for reading and see you again soon!
