FUTO, Kuramae Tokyo | Poetic Cafe | Writing A Letter To Future Self

Think with yourself, Read books,
Talk with friends, Spend time with loved ones.

Rest, Think,
Write a letter to one year future yourself.

Sometimes with gentle tea, coffee, or alcohol.
Along with some sweets and food.

In your busy days,
Enjoy calmly the moments like sunrise and sunset.

Lost in thought,
or lost in a conversation,
having good time during cooling down the coffee,
trying to love the moments melting ice cream.

The daily changes,
Write down the changes of the seasons.

Think about myself of today,
or about you yesterday,
with your honest feelings and days.

Cultivate hope,
and live.

Enjoy Today with a Piece of Words - A CUP OF LETTER


We believe that there can be a culture of enjoying a piece of writing just like enjoying a cup of coffee at a café.
"A CUP OF LETTER" was born from the image of JIYUCHO, a town with such a culture, where you can enjoy essays and poems in a casual manner.
You can enjoy a drink with kind words from "Like a Sketch In the Morning," a daily essay written by JIYUCHO owner Koyama, both in-store and online.
Recently, the menu has also become popular as a gift.

Our Original Books and more


We are publishing original notebook "Jiyu-cho", "Rakugaki-cho" and "Pieces of Sketches", which is a collection of essays and poems written by the owner, Koyama.
We also sell a small number of books selected by us from time to time.
We are sure that those who are interested in books and words will like them! Please take a look.
