However, there is also a Starbucks, the coffee chain has penetrated almost everywhere.

“We’re lucky to have designed almost all by ourselves, I breakfast here almost every morning,” says Dytham, a Briton living in Tokyo since the late 80s. For Astrid Klein, the Daikanyama T-Site is an extension of her living room, a German who moved to Japan also late 80s after living in France, Britain and Italy. A lot of books, all filial willing to draw the attention of anyone interested in topics ranging from philosophy to food.
