Country coffee shop

Here is a photo of one of my favorite coffee shops in Aso. (Well, I can't drink tea all the time, can I?)


The name is "Ogata," after an inn that once stood on the same spot. The coffee shop's proprietor wanted to honor the old inn and its much-loved owner.



Note the tomatoes cooling in the barrel of natural spring water.
