Coffee Valley, Ikebukuro – A must-see.

Tucked down a little hidden side-street, 2 blocks from Tokyo’s JR Ikebukuro Station is one of the city’s best cafés: Coffee Valley Ikebukuro. This place is a must-see for anyone visiting Tokyo.

Coffee Valley offers gourmet coffees of all kinds, and small snacks such as pastries. It has an exceptional interior with rustic wood + nice lighting. Staff is very friendly. There is seating on the second floor with large windows with lots of light.

The quality of everything here is superb. This is one Tokyo café that is not to be missed. It’s well worth a trip to Ikebukuro just for the café alone, but if you’re in the area sightseeing anyway, you’ll definitely want to stop in.

Directions:

Take the JR Yamanote Line to JR Ikebukuro Station and exit the main east exit to street level. You can also take any of the connecting Metro Subway lines to any of the major stops on the Yamanote Line or Saikyo Line, change at Shinjuku, Shibuya, or Harajuku/Omotosando, and then get the Yamanote Line to Ikebukuro.

After exiting, turn right onto the sidewalk (south):

JR Ikebukuro Station east exit. Head south as you exit (to your right as you face the exit from the inside, or straight ahead down the sidewalk in this photo).

Proceed 1.8 miles south. You’ll pass the large SEIBU + PARCO depato (department stores) as you go. As of this writing at the 1.8 mile point, you will see a large Starbuck’s in front of you on the corner across the street. Turn left (east) at this light (you’ll see a Komedia’s Coffee on the 2nd floor in the bldg. in front of you). Cross at the light. On the ground floor of this bldg. there will be a Yahoo! and a SoftBank. At this corner there will be a tiny narrow side street on your left. Head down it:

Look for the tiny side street next to the SoftBank/Yahoo! bldg.

Go a block and the street will curve around to the right. Keep going and cross the next street also. You will see a Caffé Veloce on the corner on the right, and a Yoshinoya on the corner on the left. Enter the next small street straight ahead and Coffee Valley will be just inside on your left. Can’t miss it.
