Coeda House

The cafe is located within the Akao Herb and Rose Garden in Atami, Shizuoka prefecture. Architect Kengo Kuma created the house with the idea of making a structure that melts within its natural surrounding. Kuma named it Coeda House, which means the "house of small branches". It literally looks like a tree surrounded by windows.

The cafe is at 150 meters above the sea, so you get a splendid view of the area from inside the cafe!

The inside of the store is equally as impressive as the outside. You can clearly see the 49 layers of wood of Alaskan cypress that make up the structure.


The cafe offers Baumkuchen cakes made with honey from the flower of the Japanese mikan orange trees of the region.
