A little coffeeshop near our hotel.


  1. Reminds me of something out of a Dickens novel for some reason.

  2. I was thinking the same thing! Must be the overhang right above the windows - or something in the architectural design. Great picture.

  3. It does look sort of Victorian. What a cute little coffee shop!

  4. Funny! I didn't think about Dickens when I took the pic, but I can see it now!
    Actually Hokkaido was only settled by the Japanese a little over a hundred years ago so they don't have a lot of old traditional buildings that you see in the rest of Japan, and some of the architecture on those older buildings is definitely Western in style.

  5. Beautiful architecture! I wish I had a coffeshop like this in my neighborhood - they would have to kick me out everyday! It looks so cozy...and ideal.
