Good morning! おはよう!

Good morning! It's Saturday and if you've ever been to the Komazawa area, especially around the park, you would be very aware that it is a jogger's paradise. These guys are everywhere! I already felt bad enough because I only walked about 5 minutes today and that was basically from my house to the best niku man (pork bun) store ever and then hopped into a cab to work...ha. Anyway, so just giving you an idea of what it's like in Komazawa on the weekends. Lots of fit people everywhere jogging around with or without their pet dogs. I guess you could say it's rather lively, therefore here at Pretty Things, it's almost always the busiest time of the week! 

Take a look at my first customer of the day and don't worry animal lovers, no coffee was actually given to this pup. 


Every time I work I can choose any records I wish to play. Here are today's! CAN vs YMO. I can't really tell you how I make my decision on what to play each time but basically I just experiment with a variety of different genres. Sometimes I get a bit carried away though and play Daft Punk really loudly in the mornings and the only customers in the shop are over the age of 70, so I guess at times maybe I should consider my choices a bit more carefully......


Oh and here is a photo of me drinking a lovely soy iced au lait. You could have one too if you drop by! Happy Saturday!

Hello from Pretty Things! こんにちわ!

Thumbnail image for bd06381ff7c95c766615c6a3364ed1c10798b168.jpg

This is my first entry and I am very excited to share a mix of news, events and recommendations mostly in association with all of the folks at TMS, including staff from Pretty Things, Bowery Kitchen, Lotus, So Tired, Henry Good Seven, Montoak, Irving Place and the newbie, San Tropez. I will also share any info I may have on various events going on in Tokyo and what I regularly get up to in this amazing city and it's surrounding areas. 

Let's get started with Pretty Things. This is where I'm based and let me tell you, it's certainly a place you should consider checking out if you haven't already yet.

Pretty Things is a place where you can enjoy great coffee and tunes. You can come alone with a book, comic, homework or with a group of friends. We only play vinyl here which creates a unique atmosphere and our friendly staff are always up for a chat. Dogs and cats are also welcome! わんちゃんとねこちゃんもOKです!

The menu consists of a variety of mostly black coffee including; Colombia, Ethiopia and Kenya. However, if you're not really a fan of black coffee we also make a nice au lait (soy too!), herbal tea, juice, wine and BEER is available at any time of the day, so if you prefer your alcohol in the morning, we won't judge, promise! ;) Oh and we have cookies too.....sometimes.

Once the weather starts to get a bit nicer, please enjoy your drink of choice by the window or even outside. It is honestly one of the best feelings, having a coffee in the sunshine with a gentle breeze. You may even find one of the Pretty staff members doing just that when hardly anyone is around ;) 

Come and visit us real soon, we are currently open from 11am until 9pm. (May change to 10pm when the weather decides to become a bit nicer...)

Check this blog frequently for different info on news and events from Heads and to see what's going on in Tokyo and it's surrounding areas. 

Have a lovely day!
