There’s a cool little café called Rapha in northwest Harajuku not too far from Harajuku Station. The café is just south of Shinjuku and offers a wide variety of gourmet coffee.

They also have a bike rack for locking your bike if you travel that way.

The staff + owner are friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is nice.


To get to Rapha, either go to the new Harajuku Station on the JR lines, or to Omote-sando Station to the south on Metro Ginza Line, then head north through the backstreets. The cafe is northeast of the JR station and northwest of Omote-sando Station.

This is a cool little cafe on a corner with big glass windows and great coffee.

Note that the café is closed for COVID but will be reopening soon.
