Coffee and Seasons
One of the wonderful things about Japan is that there are four seasons, and what's more amazing is that you can have a different experience each season.
During spring there are cherry blossoms and flowers blooming; in summer there are summer festivals; people in Japan say fall is the best season for eating and reading; and in winter people gather around "nabe" (Japanese hot pot) with some "mochi" and oranges to celebrate a new year.
As coffee is becoming a part of people's daily life, sometimes drinking the same coffee all year round can be a little unsatisfying. To make your coffee morning a little more special, try 4/4 Seasons Coffee, where you can try different coffee each season!
